Personal Safety


Even though it’s not often spoken about, gambling behaviour is becoming more common amongst children and young people. The younger someone starts gambling or gets used to gambling behaviour, the more likely they are to have a problem with gambling later in life.

By being aware of gambling behaviour and getting help early on, you can prevent gambling from becoming a problem in the future.

Drugs & Alcohol

While alcohol misuse can present health risks and cause careless behaviour in all age groups, it is even more dangerous for young people.

Because young people’s bodies are still growing, alcohol can interfere with their development. This makes young people particularly vulnerable to the long-term damage caused by alcohol.

As well as physical and emotional problems, drinking alcohol in adolescence can harm the development of the brain.
