Fast Forward – Gambling Education Hub Programme
The Gambling Education Hub, run by Fast Forward and funded by GambleAware, is a Scotland-wide gambling education and prevention programme.
The mission of the Hub is to make it possible for every young person in Scotland to have access to gambling education and prevention opportunities. To do so, the Hub engages with organisations and services that work with young people and families in the following 5 sectors:
- informal education sector
- youth employability sector
- secondary schools
- further and higher education sector
- parents and carers sector
By promoting a harm reduction approach and providing tailored support, the Hub offers practitioners training sessions, consultancy and resources, all free of charge.
To support this programme, the Hub has developed a Gambling Education Toolkit in 2017. It’s available, for free, on the Fast Forward website.
Then, in May 2019, it launched the Scottish Gambling Education Network (SGEN), which brings together organisations, practitioners and young people from across Scotland to share best practice, provide support and help establish and expand local gambling education projects.
