Free gaming and gambling awareness session for parents/guardians

Ygam is an award-winning charity working to safeguard future generations against gaming and gambling harms.

This is achieved through evidence-led, evaluated and assured education programmes and resources for anyone that works with or cares for young and vulnerable people, including teachers, youth workers, community volunteers and mental health specialists.

Following research with organisations, parents and children Ygam Parents have developed a workshop providing parents with information around gaming, microtransactions and gambling.

What does the session entail?

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the benefits and concerns in relation to gaming, including microtransactions.
  • Recognise the blurred lines between gaming and gambling.
  • Understand gambling: Exploring the influences on young people.
  • Recognise the signs of harm and where to get further help and support.

The session provides parents with information and support ideas they can use to support their child(ren). The workshop complements our Parent Hub which continues to provide parents with further information and support.

We also have a dedicated Parent Hub which aims to provide information and guidance to help you safeguard your children against the potential harms of gaming and gambling.
