There is sufficient evidence to support that gambling can be a main cause of several negative impacts upon an individual and their loved ones, some of which include a increased risk of homelessness (people within the homeless community are up to 10 times more likely to experience significant harm from gambling), poor mental health, debt, (food) poverty, domestic abuse/violence, criminality, social isolation and in many cases, suicidal ideation/intent (on average 2 people a day in the UK lose their lives to gambling).
The ‘Bet You Can Help’ training programme, is an educational first aid approach to tackling gambling related harms. This programme looks to engage with all aspects of criminal justice system aiming to equip learners with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to tackle gambling related harm at a variety of touch points.
Our aim is that providing this training to those working in “helping roles” , we will hope to drive down the numbers of individuals experiencing gambling related harm, whether that be the individual or anyone else affected.
