    The Gambling Education Hub is running a free webinar to continue supporting services across Scotland. The webinar will take place from 10:00 - 12:00 on Tuesday 29 June 2021.

    This webinar is specifically designed for staff/volunteers who work with parents, carers and families across Scotland. This training programme has been accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health in association with the programme

    The training will be an interactive online session, to help participants engage with the content and discussions throughout the session.

    Participants will:

    • Explore current issues surrounding gambling and young people, with a focus on education, prevention and support
    • 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.

    The Hub can organise a free tailored session for your team or perhaps team up with another organisation. Contact Donna Brunton, Project Officer (Scottish Gambling Education Hub) for more information.
