As you may already know, GamCare is a national provider of free information, advice and treatment for anyone affected by problem gambling. There are around 500,000 problem gamblers in the UK, up to 20% of whom are women. For every person who has a problem with gambling, up to 10 other people can be affected, and women are disproportionately at risk of experiencing gambling-related harm. Women experiencing gambling-related harm can suffer from debt, relationship difficulties, housing issues, gender-based violence, health problems, depression and anxiety, feelings of isolation, and suicidality.
Our FREE training is usually offered face-to-face, but we now have a 2 hour session which we are delivering online via Zoom. Individuals can register to attend the training at their convenience, using a mobile phone, tablet, or laptop. Book your place using Eventbrite
During the training session, GamCare Women’s Network will talk about gambling-related harm, risk factors, impacts, and how to recognise and support people affected. Learn about the treatment network and how to refer clients to our free treatment services. This training is essential for any professionals who work with women and families.
