    • Increase their awareness of how gambling harms impact the health and well-being of young people and families
    • Better understand what gambling disorder is and its relationship with other risk-taking behaviours
    • Discuss concerns regarding online gambling and gaming
    • Strengthen their skills and confidence to deliver gambling education and prevention activities as part of a parent and carer programme
    • Increase their knowledge of resources available (such as Fast Forward’s Gambling Education Toolkit)
    • Find information on additional support and specialised services

    This webinar, which will take place via Zoom, will take place from 10:00 - 12:00 on Tuesday 25 May 2021. Places can be booked here.
