Educating Diverse Communities
Find out more about the Preventing Gambling Harms in Diverse Communities Programme.
RED CARD will be delivering educational workshops to help raise awareness for gambling within diverse communities, particularly for young Black and Asian people.
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.
Gambling and BAME — A Review.
In a study by Clearview research, 89% of young BAME participants said that there was a difference between how gambling is seen in minority ethnic cultures when compared to white cultures.
This is the first review to collect, collate, and analyse the evidence on the prevalence of gambling disorder, the associated risk factors, and the perceptions of problem-gambling, within BAME populations.
Prevention of Gambling Harm in Diverse and Ethnic Minority Groups.
Red Card will be delivering FREE gambling awareness educational workshops to people from the BAME community, from June 2022.
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.
