Slough Town FC have collaborated with Epic Risk Management to educate schools on gambling harm. The non-league English football club will run sessions, courtesy of Epic Risk Management, at their home ground of Arbour Park Stadium. The sessions will be free of charge to 25 local schools during the academic year.

Slough Town FC Educating Schools On Betting Harm

In a joint effort to address the issue of gambling-related harm among young people, Slough Town FC and Epic Risk Management have partnered to introduce an educational programme for secondary schools.

The initiative has been designed to raise awareness of the potential risks of sports betting, and will be used to encourage safe, responsible gambling practices. Epic Risk Management, the world’s leading independent gambling harm minimisation consultancy, are working to minimise betting harm with operations in 22 countries around the globe.

The key of Epic Risk Management’s seminars are to educate individuals about the pitfalls and regulations concerning sports betting. The programme’s core session will be led by Slough Town FC First Team Player Manager – Scott Davies.

Davies, with seven years of experience in delivering ‘lived experience’ sessions, has primarily worked with the highest-risk sectors affected by gambling addiction, with schools increasingly impacted due to the changing landscape of online gaming for young people.

To kick off the programme, schools are invited to attend Davies’ session at Arbour Park Stadium on Thursday, November 9. Arbour Park, home of the Rebels’, will be the location for these sessions to help address and educate young people on the risks attached to sports betting.

Slough Town FC embark on the FA Cup First Round this weekend, as they host Grimsby Town to Arbour Park. The Rebels’ will be hopeful of continuing their impressive run in the FA Cup. They are one of the lowest ranked teams left in the competition, and will be hoping for yet another ‘giant killing’ against a League Two outfit.
