During January, BCT produced a social media campaign titled ’31 for 31’ to promote our partnerships work across the North West of England and to celebrate some of the great organisations we work with. Each day in January through all of our social media channels we posted details of a variety of services we collaborate with.
We engage with services from all stages of our life journey modelling. We have looked at schools who have engaged with our young people’s programmes, universities, UCLan and Liverpool John Moores University who have received training from us or signed our workplace charter, Princes Trust and the NSPCC.
We celebrated key players in our strategy to reduce gambling harms including public health teams in Blackburn, Cumberland, Westmorland and Furness and Knowsley, local police force Merseyside Police, but also big employers in the region Sellafield.
It was also important to show our strong partnerships with organisations within the gambling harms sector, from Gordon Moody, Adferiad, Primary Care Gambling Service and Alerts, alongside organisations recently entering this space, Forward Trust and Citizens Advice Wirral.
Added to this we have engaged with a variety of public facing services, statutory bodies and partnerships who we also feel it is important to celebrate.
It is important to note that these are only a selection of the relationships we have developed over a number of years. We look forward to working with even more stakeholder through 2024!
