National Lottery Funded

National Lottery Community Fund Schools and Young People Project

As part of this lottery-funded project, Red Card can provide free workshops to educate young people about gambling harms.

About the project & free workshops

Funded from 2022 to 2025, this lottery-funded project is designed  to educate young people about problem gambling, gambling-related harms, and sources of support. Workshops are deliverd by lived-experience facilitators.

Lottery funding allows us to deliver free workshops to secondary schools and other organisations in:

  • The Midlands
  • London
  • The Home Counties.

To arrange a workshop or discuss the project further, please get in touch.

Why young people need this project

If you work with groups of young people in the UK, the chances are that some of them are already struggling with problem gambling. Research suggests, for example, that one in six students have a problem with gambling.

Other statistics for students and young people make similar grim reading. And experts are concerned that the true scale of the gambling industry’s impact is hidden.

Although problem gambling affects all ages across society, young people are among the most vulnerable. Red Card’s work is dedicated to educating young people in a way that they find engaging and relevant.

We have successfully delivered our talks and workshops to many schools and other organisations, and we would love to work with you too. Please contact us to arrange a visit or to discuss our project further.

Paid school & youth workshops

For  schools , charities and other youth projects which lie outside of the funded regions, it’s still possible to take part in a Red Card workshop. However, this requires payment of our standard Red Card fee.

Please contact us for more information.

National Lottery funding means we can give free workshops to schools in London, South East, and the Midlands.
