Talking about safer gambling is something that YGAM does year-round and we welcome the notion of dedicating a week to amplifying the message around safer gambling and bringing charities and operators together to raise awareness and encourage conversations with customers, staff and the wider public about gambling responsibly.

During the week 7th – 13th November, the YGAM calendar, like most weeks is busy with awareness events, conferences and overseas training and here is just a taste of some the things we are up to.

YGAM Practitioner Workshops
Open to anyone that works with young or vulnerable people aged 7-25, our accredited workshops cover information on gaming and gambling in the UK and provide the tools needed to protect people from the risks of problem gaming and/or gambling.

Workshops during and around Responsible Gambling Week include:

18th November – London – Book Now
20th November – Leeds – Book Now
