Our ground-breaking education programme is aimed at preventing gambling harm in young people.
Created by people with lived experience of gambling harm, academics, teachers, award-winning filmmakers, and education experts, the programme aims to provide young people with as complete information as possible so that they know the risks of engaging with harmful gambling products.
UK children addicted to gambling
Our materials are based on academic research into what’s successful in education and awareness-raising in drugs, tobacco, and alcohol programmes. Crucially, our materials make clear that gambling disorder is a clinically diagnosable mental health condition. We focus on how addictive products are designed and the methods and impact of gambling industry marketing practices.
The programme has been designed to run as a four-part lesson and is being piloted at schools across England and Northern Ireland before being rolled out across the UK.
The programme includes an award-winning film which is based on lived experience and includes testimony from professionals and people who have suffered gambling harms. The film illustrates how gambling disorder can develop over time and the consequences it can have. You can watch the trailer below.
