Overcoming the harms caused by alcohol, drugs and gambling
This free training has been put together by GamCare, the UK's leading charity supporting those affected by gambling (whether problem gamblers or affected others). Having identified education as a key part of preventing harm as a result of gambling, we offer an introductory workshop for professionals who support young people to gain useful knowledge and practical skills to apply in their youth-facing roles.
- Definition, nature and incidence of problem gambling in young people
- How to screen for at risk young people
- Where to signpost young people to access support and information
The training is a valuable addition to any safeguarding, mental health or support worker oriented skills profile.
We encourage all youth-facing practitioners, family support workers, teaching staff and anyone with interaction with young people and their families to add this training to their CPD.
Please see the attached flyers from Aquarius for details.
