ISLE OF MAN - Microgaming PlayItForward has donated £12,680 to YGAM, helping the charity expand its gambling-related harm prevention programme to the Isle of Man.
The Young Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM) is an independent UK registered charity focused on raising awareness of gambling and gambling-related harm among young people through its accredited educational programme. Over the past three years, the charity has delivered workshops across the UK as well as Malta, Gibraltar and the Netherlands.
Microgaming PlayItForward’s donation will enable YGAM to bring its programme to the Isle of Man, where the charity plans to work with schools and the local government to deliver its established Train the Trainer workshops. The series of workshops will be aimed at teachers, youth workers and community volunteers and will have a focus on developing digital resilience among young people. In addition, Microgaming will be collaborating with the YGAM team to facilitate the delivery of bespoke accredited training around player protection.
