Safer Gambling Week 2020 will run from 19 – 25 November, aiming again to create a conversation with customers, staff and the wider public about safer gambling.
Previously called Responsible Gambling week, the campaign aims to raise awareness of how to gamble more safely, the tools that are available to help people gamble safely all year round, and sources of more advice and support. The whole of the UK and Irish gambling industry – amusement arcades, bingo clubs, bookmakers, casinos and online – will come together to support Safer Gambling Week, with operators set to promote material and information via their highly trained staff teams both in venues and on their websites and social media channels.
A range of promotional material with key information has been made available to all supporting organisations, and some venues are undertaking special events during the week. Key support organisations like the National Gambling Helpline, GamCare and YGam will also be promoting the week and preparing for increased numbers of enquiries due to the national campaign.
