Yesterday saw the commencement of Safer Gambling Week 2021 in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, an initiative setup by operators to promote safer gambling.
The week will see cross-industry promotion of Safer Gambling Week and on Thursday 4th November, the EGR Summit: Building a Safer Gambling Industry will be held in London, bringing together all those who have a vested interest in the industry.
Following on from last year’s event, the purpose of Safer Gambling Week is to drive awareness of responsible gambling, the tools available to help you stay in control of your gambling, as well as providing resources for help and advice.
Subsequently many of the land based establishments, as well as sites found online which are licensed and regulated in the UK and Ireland, will be promoting Safer Gambling Week, highlighting and promoting responsible gambling.
Additionally, leading responsible gambling charities will be holding workshops and training sessions throughout the seven day period, focused on parents and those working with young people.
