The Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust or YGAM has announced the appointment of 5 new members to its board of trustees. The YGAM promotes the education of young people when it comes to gambling activities and the new members are hoped to bring some diversity and fresh ideas to the organisation.
YGAM chair Mike Wojcik said:
“I’m thrilled to welcome our new trustees to the charity and delighted we continue to attract professionals with such ability, experience, and knowledge. They are joining the board at a crucial time as we build on our reputation as a sector leading education charity and develop our ambitious new strategy which will be launched at the start of 2023. It’s already apparent that the newly revitalised board will achieve great things in supporting the excellent staff team to achieve impact our social purpose.”
One of the new trustees Anna Greeves also had the following to say:
“YGAM is an exciting organisation doing vital, ground-breaking work and I’m delighted to have been appointed to the trustee board. I hope to contribute both my extensive experience as a fundraiser and lived experience of the gaming sector to their work. I’m passionate about ensuring that gaming spaces are safe for everyone – especially women and girls and the LGBTQ+ community.”
We are seeing organisations such as YGAM and iGaming companies themselves pushing for gambling responsibility and education amongst young players so it is hoped that young people will be able to create a more positive relationship with gambling than some previous generations.
