RecoverMe, Gamstop, and YGAM collaborate on an awareness tour of universities

The Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust, Gamstop, and RecoverMe have partnered to launch a university tour to increase student awareness and promote accessible support. 

Awareness Tour

The three organizations will tour university campuses across the United Kingdom to speak with students and faculty about gambling-related hazards and the training and support services.

YGAM will give university administrators, student union officers, and safeguarding lead complimentary harm prevention training. This program aims to arm individuals with the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to recognize symptoms of gambling-related harm and assist struggling students. This month, the trip will begin with stops at Birmingham, Exeter, and Plymouth universities.

Quotes from the Press Release

Katie Reynolds-Jones, head of marketing and communications at Gamstop, explained: “With over 58 percent of Gamstop users being between the ages of 18 and 34, we must understand students and communicate effectively with them. Students must be aware of the free resources and assistance available to them, and we are honored to be a part of this critical campaign.”

“Students are a critical population for us, and the current survey findings underscore the necessity of teaching our young adults about the risks and consequences connected with gambling,” said Jimmy Parkin, YGAM’s university and student engagement manager.

“This is the first university tour of its kind. We hope that by cooperating with Gamstop and RecoverMe, we can leverage our expertise and services to guarantee that students have access to the information, tools, and assistance they need to have a gambling-free university experience.”

“The current survey findings demonstrate how the student population can be a high-risk demographic for gambling-related harm; We founded RecoverMe when one of our close university friends struggled with gambling addiction and was unsure where to turn.

” Dr Adil Nayeem, the co-founder of RecoverMe, noted.

“We founded RecoverMe when one of our close university friends struggled with gambling addiction and was unsure where to turn, and we’re eager to tour university campuses around the United Kingdom and interact with students and staff. By partnering with these outstanding organizations, we can assist students and contribute to the reduction of gambling-related harm.”
