Identification & Brief Advice - For Universities

A survey by Save the Student showed that one in ten UK university students has gambled in an attempt to make money. The latest Gambling Commission report on participation and attitudes to gambling in the UK also identified that 7.9% of 16-24 year olds are at-risk of developing a gambling problem.

Student gambling issues are an increasing concern for universities. Provide your staff with the awareness, knowledge and skills to identify problems with gambling and advise students who are affected. 

Attendees will gain practical communication skills to invite students to discuss their gambling and provide a brief screening of their gambling behaviour, and will leave equipped with the knowledge of which services they can signpost to for further support.

This training is relevant to all staff members at universities who interact with students - you may be working in the student finance department, or you may be a clinician or welfare worker.
