Could it be beneficial for you to know more about problematic gambling harm? GamCare offers free 90 minute webinars online, and CPD accredited training, funded by the National Gambling Commission.
Currently over 0.5% of our population are considered problem gamblers and 7% of the population of the UK are negatively affected by gambling, which is one in 12 people either directly or indirectly affected by gambling-related harms.
As a quick overview, this free CPD accredited webinar will look at signs of problematic gambling for women predominately, as often women don’t talk about gambling. They will discuss those most at risk and affected, how others are affected by problematic gambling by someone else in the home and also provide signposting to all of GamCare's free services.
GamCare is the leading charity in the UK helping people with problematic gambling or experiencing gambling harms for over 30 years, best known for the National Gambling Helpline. They are currently delivering sessions to all UK professionals across all public sector groups and charities. Please see dates below.
