Blocking software in production by Gamble Aware

17 Oct 2018

rga gamble awareIn an effort to reduce the pathological symptoms of gambling, Gamble Aware is ready to develop and launch an excellent new application, meant to block access to gambling sites. The software is going to prevent access to self-excluded licensed and illegal gambling sites, and by that way, everyone could easily exclude themselves from betting. Of course, the cost of the application will not come cheap, but the charity organization is ready to make every necessary move, in order to make the app available to more people.

In addition, they have also called the parents and families to speak to the younger members of theirs in order for the latter to be educated regarding the risks of gambling.

GambleAware has also published a report explaining the importance and the role parents and family, as well as their behavior, in overall may have towards gambling-related harm young people. The greatest problem though is that most of the parents do not really understand the consequences and the risks gambling may have for their children and that is the greatest struggle for GambleAware. To make the parents and the members of every family understand what gambling is all about.

Clare Wylie told that although the reports showing the parents’ importance in the children’s lives, more research has to be done regarding this issue. “This research highlights the importance of parents in the lives of young people and gambling but also that parents and families are not always aware of the issues young people are facing. More research is needed in this area to support policy and practice going forward.”
