Safer Gambling Week has launched a new website to better inform and support all participants of this year’s Safer Gambling Week event that will take place from 17th – 23rd October 2022 (#SGWeek2022).
The new website of safergamblinguk.org will serve as a hub of information and tools for all safer gambling stakeholders.
Safer Gambling Week is organised by the BGC, BACTA and the Bingo Association – and is recognised as the industry’s headline social responsibility event raising public awareness of gambling safeguards and best practices.
SGWeek is now in its sixth year as post-pandemic event organisers plan a blitz of safer gambling messages both online and in land-based venues, to spark a nationwide conversation about betting responsibly.
“The whole industry will be coming together in a concerted effort to further promote safer gambling messages, the tools available to customers to stay in control and the help and support available to those who champion higher standards.” – read the organisers’ statement
The annual campaign will build upon the record-breaking Safer Gambling Week 2021 during which we saw record numbers visit the website with sessions up by 79% on the previous year to find information on the many safer gambling tools that are available.
The promotion and awareness of safer gambling tools such as deposit limits led to an increase by 17% in their use vs the previous 4-week average.
Safer Gambling Week provides an opportunity to encourage businesses and organisations to start a conversation, not only with staff and customers, but also with their friends and family. The new website will include resources for a wide range of organisations.
