Free Training and Skills Session with Gamcare

May 25, 2023, 14.30

Online, Zoom

Trade union reps are ideally placed to support workers experiencing a wide range of issues. Recently, gambling has been identified as an area in which union reps would benefit from some training, in order to ensure they provide the most relevant support and sign-posting.

Gambling is known as the hidden addiction. People are unwilling to talk about it and often will present at services with debt, mental health issues, housing problems, isolation, criminal activity, and suicidal ideation, however underlying this is gambling.

Taking part in GamCare’s free training can increase your knowledge, skills, and confidence to discuss and support individuals experiencing gambling related harm, whether as the gambler or an affected other. This will ensure that people get the right support at the right time. This introductory training session will provide information and advice about how to identify gambling harms, the services that are available, and how to make a referral.
