Know the Stakes – What you get

Parent Zone and GambleAware have created new resources for parents, carers and professionals, so they can support young people to stay in control of their finances and understand the risks of gambling.

The free 'Know the Stakes' pack includes a range of different materials:

  • FAQs on some of the most common issues that parents, carers and professionals have about young people and gambling.
  • Top Tips on the signs of gambling-related problems and what to do if you suspect that a young person has lost control.
  • A Glossary that explains a range of gambling-related terms.
  • A Guide for professionals to the legality of gambling for young people, outlining the signs that a young person might be struggling, and suggesting how to provide support.
