Event description
Free, online training about women and gambling-related harm. Suitable for professionals across all sectors working with women and families.

About this Event

There are around 450,000 people with a gambling disorder in the UK, up to 20% of whom are women. And, for every person who has a gambling disorder, up to 10 other people can be affected, and women are disproportionately at risk of experiencing gambling-related harm.

Gambling-related harm can include debt, relationship difficulties, housing issues, gender-based violence, depression and anxiety, feelings of isolation, and suicidality.

During this 2-hour FREE interactive Zoom training session, we will cover more about gambling-related harm, risk factors, impacts, how gambling-related harm disproportionately affects women, and how to identify and support people affected. Learn about our treatment network and how to refer clients to treatment services. This training is essential for any professionals who work with women and families.

GamCare’s National Gambling HelpLine took over 38,000 calls last year from men and women affected by gambling-related harm and over 11,800 people accessed free treatment through our treatment network across England, Scotland and Wales.

Joining details and a Zoom link will be sent by Eventbrite 2 days before the training begins, with reminders 2 hours before and 10 minutes before. If you do not receive these emails, please check your junk or spam folder, or contact polly.johnson@gamcare.org.uk

We know that life and work are unpredictable - if you find you are unable to attend, please let me know so that we can offer your place to someone else. While the training is funded and therefore offered free to attendees, we do want to make the most of our funding and ensure that as many people are able to attend as possible.

*Content warning*

We want everyone who joins our training to feel safe and empowered to take care of their own wellbeing. We therefore feel it is important to state that this session covers gambling-related harm in some depth, and will include references to emotive subjects including addiction, abuse, self-harm and suicide.
