GambleAware To Establish Gambling Education Hubs

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

UK gambling charity GambleAware has announced that they've dedicated £2.5 million to build a series of Gambling Education Hubs throughout England and Wales.

The locations will use various prevention methods to work on reducing gambling addiction among children and younger gamblers using various training methods. This training would also be open to teachers, youth practitioners, and different groups to help provide help on their own.

GambleAware got the inspiration for hubs through the Scottish group Fast Forward, which has run hubs for the better part of the past decade.

A statement from GambleAware read in part: "To reduce the risk of young people experiencing gambling harms, these new Hubs will help provide youth practitioners and organisations in England and Wales with the skills and confidence to educate young people about the risks related to gambling, the harms associated with it and where to go to for support and advice."

The charity is currently accepting bids on the design and development on the hubs. Bids are due by November 2nd.
