Preventing Gambling Harms in Diverse Communities

For Faith & Community Leaders

Free training and resources aimed at safeguarding young people from ethnic minority populations. The programme content centres on an understanding of socio-cultural and religious contexts on shame and stigma relating to gambling harms. This is a pilot in London and the Home Counties.

About the Programme

This pioneering new education programme has been launched in Greater London and the Home Counties to raise awareness and address the issue of gambling harm disproportionately affecting young people from ethnic minority populations.

The initiative has been developed through a unique collaboration between YGAM, TalkGEN CIC, Red Card Gambling Support Project CIC and Clearview Research. The prevention programme will deliver free specialist workshops to young people from ethnic minority populations aged 14–24, as well as free training to community and faith leaders. 

90% of young people from ethnic minority backgrounds agree that gambling is seen differently within their ethnic cultures than within white British cultures.
