About this event

Gambling is a hidden addiction. This training workshop is an opportunity to learn all about how problem gambling affects young people and families. It’s delivered by Fast Forward’s Gambling Education Hub.

The free training session also provides practice-rich examples of harm-minimisation and group engagement. You will explore how gambling harms can be addressed and how to include gambling in your services for young people and families.

Key learning:

  • Increased gambling awareness and its impact on young people and families
  •  Understanding problem gambling, its consequences and the links with other risk-taking behaviours
  • Exploring a variety of ways to address gambling as part of an overall health and wellbeing programme
  • Gaining skills and confidence to deliver gambling education and prevention activities
  • Increased knowledge of the resources available and of specialised gambling services.
