National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Commencement of Year 2 of State School Education Programme which aims to raise awareness of gambling harm through accounts of lived experience (EPIC)


November 2020

EPIC Risk Management are working with schools and their students to raise awareness and prevent gambling related harm amongst young people. This includes visits to 100 schools, twice each, over a two-year period 2019-2021 in the UK and potentially Ireland. In the previous academic year, EPIC have reached over 33,000 young people. This two-year period will allow for a robust anonymised data capture and in turn this will enable EPIC to work with the University Campus of Football Business to identify trends over a two-year period.
