BAME

Educational Workshops

RED CARD will be delivering educational workshops to help raise awareness for gambling within Diverse Communities, particularly for young Black and Asian people (aged 14-24).

BAME Workshops
There are various reasons why we feel more education and awareness are needed for this group of population. We believe specific barriers need to be broken down, such as the stigma and shame attached to problem gambling within these communities.

We will address the issues young people face and will endeavour to reach as many young people as possible in London and the home counties over the coming months. The research we have done shows a lack of knowledge and understanding of gambling addiction within Diverse Communities. We need to highlight the harms caused to our youth to build more productive, healthy, and sustainable lifestyles in the future.

Prevention of Gambling Harm in Diverse and Ethnic Minority Groups.

Red Card will be delivering FREE gambling awareness educational workshops for 14-24 year olds from the BAME community, from June 2021.

This population of young people are seen to be more vulnerable and at risk of gambling harm, due to demographics, cultural, and financial reasons.
The workshops aim to educate on all aspects of gambling harm, and provide young people with a better understanding and more knowledge of what problem gambling looks like.
Please read the article from the Voice Newspaper about the gambling harm prevention programme.

Service Summary

Since RED CARD was established the work it has done educating young people from the Black and Asian communities on the risks of gambling addiction has been invaluable.

Gambling addiction can have a devastating impact on the lives of those who fall victim to it and its vital we have community-based organisations like RED CARD who can make life-changing interventions at an early stage.
