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.
