Description

On 15 March 2018, Demos think tank in partnership with GambleAware will launch Demos’ new report Reducing the Odds: An Education Pilot to Prevent Gambling Related Harm at a breakfast briefing in Westminster.

Demos has been piloting educational resources in secondary schools as part of wider efforts to help prevent gambling-related harm. The resources were comprised of four lessons which slotted into a planned programme of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) provision for 15 year olds. They encouraged pupils to weigh risk, identify manipulative behaviour, manage impulses, help others – covering a range of ‘risky behaviours’, but with gambling as a major case study.

This launch event will bring together politicians, policy makers and the media to engage with this research project, and discuss the future of gambling prevention education for young people.

Speakers to be announced shortly.

8.30am - 10.30am, London.
