Event details

Parents and Caregivers: Worried about what your young person is doing on their devices might be impacting their employment opportunities? Worried your young person seems to have no money despite an income? Have you ever thought it might be gambling? Do you know there are gambling mechanics within gaming?


This 1.5 hour webinar designed for parents and caregivers will discuss concerns regarding online behaviours while gaining an understanding about gambling-like features within video games and how these can possibly lead to gambling harms for young people experiencing vulnerabilities due to unemployment or a sudden influx of income.

We will also discuss ways to build on these areas as part of a conversation and where to find additional support.

The session will be delivered by the Scottish Gambling Education Hub, a Fast Forward project.
