Mindful Resilience

This new programme which is being launched in Q4 2020 is structured around raising awareness of gambling and gaming-related harm among Health Care professionals. We will do this by facilitating blended and self-taught learning modules to increase the knowledge of potential harms and where to signpost young and vulnerable people / clients. This project is being delivered in a unique collaboration between Bournemouth University, YGAM, Betknowmore UK and the Responsible Gambling Council based in Canada.

Gambling Operator Training

Launching in Q4 2020 and in a unique collaboration between YGAM, Betknowmore UK and the Responsible Gambling Council based in Canada, we will launch digital self-taught and blended training to complement our face-to-face training for colleagues working in customer-facing roles in the gambling sector. Building upon our track record, our training is externally evaluated, evidence-led and co-created with industry colleagues, academics, and customers with Lived Experience (both regular customers and those who have experienced gambling-related harm). These programme will be assured by City & Guilds.
