GamCare provides a range of workshops and literature for raising gambling awareness with young people. Literature A Certain Bet – Exploring Gambling Designed for use in schools, this PSE ‘dip-in pack provides the basis for thought, discussions and learning that enables teenagers to make informed choices and to gamble responsibly. The pack is broken down into five areas of study: why we gamble; gambling and society; social gambling; the psychology of gambling; and problem gambling. It aims to increase awareness of gambling and its dangers, to gain an understanding of what is responsible gambling and to give a balanced view of the role of gambling in our society. A Dead Cert? Gambling Trigger Pack This gambling pack is intended for use by youth workers or in a youth setting. The pack is designed to trigger discussion among young people so they are able to develop an awareness of gambling issues, express their learning needs and identify problem gambling behaviours. If young people know the risks they can be empowered to make their own choices about gambling. See our Publications & Research Section for ordering details, as well as other literature and posters available.
