A couple of weeks ago the UK Gambling Commission launched their new National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms. YGAM are fortunate to sit on the Advisory Board for Safer Gambling (ABSG) Advisory Group alongside colleagues from other registered charities, gambling industry trade bodies, and members of the Safer Gambling team from the Commission themselves.
YGAM is excited to announce that it has updated its legal name. We wanted to reflect the growing emphasis on gaming and digital resilience in our work with young people. So, we are changing our name to the Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust.
Following an extensive recruitment/head-hunt process with our governance partners, Peridot Partners, and then a subsequent three month induction period, at our March board meeting we are delighted to confirm a new wave of trustees and non-executive directors have joined YGAM.
We have an opportunity for a qualified accountant to join the YGAM team. This is a new senior leadership role within YGAM, which reports directly to the Chief Executive and Treasurer and marks an investment in the next phase of our development.
YGAM were delighted to join the APPG last week for a topical debate around ‘Are children gambling, and if so, what can be done about it’.
