Only approximately 1% of women affected by gambling harms seek help through the National Gambling Helpline and GameCare wants to change this.
GamCare is the leading national provider of free information, advice and support for anyone affected by problem gambling. From 2014/15 to 2018/19 the organisation saw a 35% increase in calls from women seeking gambling support for themselves as a gambler, or as a person impacted by someone else’s gambling.
The GamCare Women’s Programme is now offering a webinar to ensure agencies and professionals feel confident in identifying and referring women for appropriate support. The session is aimed at groups and agencies in the North West of England.
This 1 hour 45 minute webinar will help you:
- Learn about the risks, causes and impacts of problem gambling
- Understand the issues specific to women that can create barriers to support and treatment
- Gain vital knowledge about referral pathways for local support and treatment
