The English Gambling Education Hub (EGEH) portal has officially launched this week as part of the ongoing effort to combat gambling-related harm. The EGEH portal is a collaborative initiative led by GambleAware and powered by GamCare and Ygam, along with other local partners. This initiative aims to enhance the capacity of various sectors to provide early intervention and prevention efforts for gambling-related harm among children and young individuals.

The EGEH network will bring together a virtual community of professionals dedicated to safeguarding the younger generation. The portal introduces the ‘Gambling Education Quality Mark’ which schools can use to educate students about gambling harm prevention. Ygam is also offering a Quality Assurance Support Package (QASP) to assist organizations in delivering training on gambling harms.

In addition, the EGEH is organizing a film competition for 11 to 25-year-olds from diverse educational settings. The winning film will be professionally developed and shown in schools across England. This collaborative program aims to centralize support and build a network of individuals who share the common goal of raising awareness and reducing the impact of gambling harms on children and young people in England.

Kyle Riding, Head of Programmes at Ygam, expressed his enthusiasm for this collaborative program, highlighting its effectiveness in providing support and building a network of like-minded individuals dedicated to protecting children and young people from the negative effects of gambling.
