    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    FastForward are delivering a free Gambling Education Training Workshop for staff/ volunteers working with Parents, Carers and Families. book your place here. 

    The training is a Train the Trainer approach and will support participants to:

    •            better understand what problem gambling is and its relationship with other risk-taking behaviours

    •            develop their understanding of the impact of problem gambling on young people, parents and families

    •            strengthen their ability to raise awareness of gambling-related harm, prevention and harm reduction advice

    •            increase their knowledge of the resources and services (such as Fast Forward's Gambling Education Toolkit) to signpost individuals that need specialised support

    •            explore ways to include gambling in the range of issues that services already address- domestic violence, child protection, money management

    •            strengthen their skills and confidence to deliver gambling education and prevention activities

    •            create bespoke informative materials for their service users
