Fast Forward is a national voluntary organisation that exists to enable young people to make informed choices about their health and well-being. The Gambling Education Hub is a new programme run by Fast Forward and funded by GambleAware. It supports and promotes gambling education and prevention with and for young people across Scotland. The mission of the Hub is to make it possible for every young person in Scotland to have access to gambling education and prevention opportunities. As part of this programme, Fast Forward is delighted to launch the Gambling Education and Prevention Small Action Fund. It is an opportunity for groups of young people to apply for up to £500 to turn an idea into action in a local project they would like to develop in order to promote gambling education and prevention.
They welcome applications from groups of young people aged 12-25 in youth groups in Scotland. You can apply for a grant of minimum £80, maximum £500. The grant will have to be used to cover the costs of the development and delivery of activity and resources related to increasing the understanding of gambling-related issues among young people. The project will have to be completed within 6 months of receiving the grant.
