GamCare is hosting an online group chatroom session aimed at women, or those who identify as female, who are affected by gambling related harms on Saturday 12th September from 7pm – 8pm.
GamCare provides daily chatroom sessions for people affected by gambling harms via our website, giving users a space to connect with peers, share their experiences and support one another with help from a GamCare adviser if needed.
Women can be disproportionately negatively impacted by gambling related harms, which include financial, relationship and mental health issues. GamCare is running this session for any women who are affected by gambling, whether they are the gambler, or a family member or friend.
GamCare’s Women’s Programme works to support women affected by gambling harms to access the support they need, as well as building a nationwide network of public and third sector organisations that work with women, to spread awareness of gambling harms and it’s many impacts, and how it relates to other issues that women may face. Our team will support this chatroom and will be on hand to listen to how participants are affected by gambling harms so they can influence the delivery of GamCare support services going forward.
Anyone who would like to join in this session will need to register via the GamCare website ahead of time: gamcare.org.uk/register/
