FVA Lunchtime Learning sessions to support third sector in Fife
FVA lunchtime learning sessions are aimed at raising the skills and capacities of local third sector providers interested in improving or enhancing their provision in Fife.
Problem gambling, defined as gambling that is disruptive, damaging and interfering with daily life is sometimes considered to be an addiction and affects an estimated 9 in 1000 of the UK’s adult population. 3.1% of problem gamblers in the UK bet more than they can afford to lose. Perhaps more worryingly, it is estimated that 0.4% of children are also problem gamblers. Gambling also disproportionately affects those on low incomes and can have long-lasting financial impacts.
At this session Paul Anderson, Project Officer for Fast Forward and the Scottish Gambling Education Hub will explain how gambling affects families, and what approaches work best for gambling education, prevention and recovery, and how best to engage with clients that need support with problem gambling.
