Information & Support

The on-line world is ever changing and it can be difficult for parents and carers to keep on top of the activities their child(ren) choose to engage in. In order to support you, we have developed a range of informative pieces around gaming and gambling to inform and educate you on these topics and help you to make safe and healthy choices for your family. Following research and working with parents and young people we have looked at the main issues and concerns around gaming and gambling to provide relevant information on both subjects alongside supportive materials to enable parents to engage with their children.
