Rachel Simm

Hi, I'm Rachel and I am the Training and Engagement Lead for GamCare in the North West of England

GamCare is a national provider of free information, advice and treatment for anyone affected by problem gambling. We have received additional funding from the Tampon Tax Fund to deliver a two-year, nationwide Women’s Programme.

My role is to provide FREE training, resources and ongoing support to staff and volunteers in organisations across the North West to help them recognise and respond to signs of gambling-related harm so that more women are empowered to access treatment and support services. We believe that shame and stigma around problem gambling means that less than 1% women affected by gambling-related harm seek support, so the harm is often hidden from view and is rarely asked about by professionals.

At the moment, all of our training is being offered online via Zoom.

Individuals can register to attend the training, using a mobile phone, tablet, or laptop; or get in touch to book a session for your organisation (rachel.simm@gamcare.org.uk).

I look forward to meeting you at one the training sessions!
