EPIC Risk Management launch new holistic Gambling Harm Education Programme
EPIC Risk Management and WHYSUP team up to create a new Gambling Harm Education Programme for secondary schools and colleges. It will focus on education, awareness and prevention surrounding gambling-related harm. The Covid-19 pandemic has increased participation in online gambling and gaming. Around 500,000 children aged 11 to 16 gamble every week in the UK and 87% of young people play online games every day. There is a rise in mental health concerns among children. EPIC will continue to work with independent schools on a privately funded basis.
