Safeguarding Young Gamers

By other at National

This is a free session for those who work with young people age 7 years and 25 years old

The Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM) is a national charity that provides free training to those that work directly with young people aged 7-25, and the resources to then deliver to those young people helping to raise awareness and safeguard around the potential far-reaching harms associated with gaming and gambling.

A survey by GambleAware and Ipsos Mori published in 2020 found that  96% of the 11 to 24-year-old participants had been exposed to gambling marketing messages in the last month. 93% of children in the UK play video games and reports suggest there has been a significant rise in the amount of time people are playing online as a result of lockdown, with weekly games sales increasing by up to 60%. The 2020 Gambling Commission Report is due to be published imminently, but the 2019 report found that 11% of 11-16-year-olds had gambled with their own money in the previous 7 days, more than those who had reported drinking alcohol, smoking either a tobacco or e-cigarette, or using illegal drugs. With 88,000 university students at risk of being a problem gambler, it is vital the education is provided early.

Our training complements the new PSHE curriculum – we cover topics such as gaming and gambling disorder, money and debt, probability and luck, and mental health and addiction and it is assured by City & Guilds as are our resources, we have over 450 across KS2-KS5, which include ‘ready to go’ PowerPoints, lesson plans, schemes of work and challenge activities.  These are mapped to the PSHE and RSE programmes of study provide an evidence base for Ofsted. We also have resources designed specifically to be used outside of formal education settings, these again are age-appropriate, mapped to specific outcomes for young people, developing skills as well as knowledge and cover the same topics to keep learning consistent. 

The training will look at:

  • an overview of how young people are increasingly exposed to gaming and gambling and the increasingly blurred lines between the two
  • the influence of advertising, particularly around sporting events
  • the role of social media, in-game purchases, loot boxes and Esports
  • the signs to look out for when an individual is at risk and where to seek help
  • a look at our resources that have been developed specifically to support practitioners to deliver directly to young people in educational and non-educational settings and a look at our dedicated Parents Support Hub
 

The training is designed to be interactive, provide opportunities for discussions and questions, raise awareness and understanding, it is suited for individuals who work directly with young people in a capacity to use our resources with them directly to help increase their digital resilience and knowledge of gaming and gambling harm and where they can seek help if needed.

Mind Your Language – Exploitation & Victim Blaming Webinar

By nwg at National

A webinar to explore victim blaming language used around the exploitation of children, young people and young adults.

About this Event

The language we use as professionals can have a significant, and potentially lifelong, impact on victims of exploitation. A victim of exploitation is never to blame for the abuse they have lived through, yet we live in times where victims are still blamed.

This webinar enables us to discuss victim-blaming language and how we can accurately and sensitively record and report on victim experiences. The aim of this webinar is to share practice between agencies and to explore ways in which we can develop the language we use.

There will be a presentation and discussion led by Sarah Brown, NWG’s Trainer, and a 30 minute Q & A to end the session.

This event will take place on Microsoft Teams – a calendar invite with the link to join will be sent to you prior to the event – please RSVP and check your inbox and spam/junk folder for the invite
