Workshop Hosted to Raise Awareness of Gaming and Gambling

YGAM for Parents to host event on 17 October 2022.

Cumberland FA is proud to work alongside the Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM) to provide a workshop for parents raising awareness of gaming and gambling.

Taking place on Monday 17 October 2022, 6.30pm-7.45pm, the workshop aims to offer parents an insight into:

  • Why children and young people might game and/or gamble
  • The meaning of gaming and gambling harms
  • The additional vulnerabilities faced by children who have experienced early life and utero trauma
  • Understanding the blurred lines between gaming and gambling
  • Where to go for help and support.

We have conversations with our children about drugs, alcohol and smoking – but what about gambling, gaming and the potential links between the two?
