Behind Closed Doors Workshop: GAMBLING

Gambling Workshop Training

*New for Autumn 2021* 

Another of our Behind Closed Doors Workshop Series, this 2 hour session provides an introduction to gambling and gambling-related harm. It can be difficult to know if someone has a problem with gambling – and even if we see some signs we may not know how to respond. 

According to the Gambling Commission it’s likely that 47% of people in the UK have gambled in some way in the last 4 weeks, and it’s estimated that approximately 430,000 people are suffering from compulsive gambling, with only an estimated 5% seeking help from a gambling programme or gambling rehab. This means that 95% of problem gamblers are at risk of their lives being dramatically affected, including a high prevalence of debt and depression.

So many people are affected by gambling, yet many do not open up and talk about their addiction, so they are left to suffer in silence behind closed doors. I’m keen to make sure the support is there for them – this workshop is a start”
