Scottish Gambling Education Network (SGEN)

The Scottish Gambling Education Network (SGEN) is the voice of gambling education in Scotland. It brings together people and organisations from a variety of education and health settings across Scotland. It exists to share best practice, provide support and help establish, sustain and expand local gambling education projects.

Join in! The network doesn't use a formal membership scheme, but you can take part by attending one of our events and joining our newsletter.

What is it?

A network of people and organisations who deliver, or want to learn more about, gambling education and harm prevention. We run:

  • Quarterly meetings
  • An annual Gambling Education Conference
  • A monthly network newsletter

SGEN events will support you to learn more about existing gambling prevention initiatives, connect with other practitioners, gain insight from experts by experience, and explore ideas to include gambling in your work.

The monthly network newsletter is facilitated by the Hub. It includes up-to-date news and research, highlights partnership opportunities, and showcases new resources.

Who is it for?

Anyone who works with children, young people, families, or communities in Scotland.

People who work outside of Scotland are also welcome, as most of our events will still be relevant for those working outside a Scottish context.
