GamCare is a national provider of free information, advice and treatment for anyone affected by problem gambling. There are around 500,000 problem gamblers in the UK, up to 20% of whom are women. For every person who has a problem with gambling, up to 10 other people can be affected, and women are disproportionately at risk of experiencing gambling-related harm. Gambling-related harm can include debt, relationship difficulties, housing issues, gender-based violence, health problems, depression and anxiety, feelings of isolation, and suicidality.
FREE training is usually offered face-to-face, but they now have a 2 hour session which they are delivering online via Zoom. Individuals can register to attend the training at their convenience, using a mobile phone, tablet, or laptop.
