Do you work with young people?

Problem gambling is an area of significant safeguarding and mental health concern for young people.

GamCare is the leading provider of information, advice and support for anyone affected by problem gambling.

We offer FREE 1.5 hour training sessions for professionals who come into contact with, or work directly with young people, delivered by our BigDeal Youth Outreach Team in partnership with NECA.

By raising your awareness you will be able to recognise the risk factors, signs and symptoms of a gambling problem, and understand the difference between gambling and problem gambling.

Regonise different ways of gambling and see the links between gaming and gambling

Find out how to talk to young people about problem gambling and advise where to seek help if they need it.

You will also learn how to use a simple screening tool and be able to sign post to the appropriate services.

If you work or volunteer in the NORTH EAST of England and work directly or come into contact with young people, this course id for you.
