OUR LONG-TERM GOAL IS TO REDUCE GAMBLING RELATED HARMS IN YOUNG PEOPLE
ARA Young People’s programme
outreach in collaboration with GamCare Big Deal
Our aim is to educate young people so they can understand the risks related to gambling and where to
get help. We offer these three FREE educational initiatives:
In 2017, ARA piloted the launch of the Youth Outreach Programme in Bristol in conjunction with Gamcare to educate young people about responsible gambling and to help them access support and help if they needed it, through the project Big Deal.
Since 2017, the programme has expanded to provide free gambling awareness workshops to 11-19 year old young people and professionals who work with young people across the whole of Wales and South-West England. In 2019, we delivered to 600 professionals and 1250 young people on problem gambling and harm reduction.
