CPD Gambling Awareness Training

Accredited CPD training in gambling awareness for your organisation.

Gambling and the workplace — a growing problem

Problem gambling not only harms individuals and families, but also has a significant impact on employers, businesses, and other work organisations.

According to Public Health England, problem gambling costs the UK economy an estimated 1.27 billion a year, and is linked to:

  • Poor concentration on work
  • Poor work performance
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Increased lateness and absence
  • Negative impacts on employers and work colleagues

Additional impacts on workplaces can include mental health issues, misuse of company property, reduced health and wellbeing, and relationship breakdowns.

Public Health England also estimate that 15% of online gamblers are gambling in the workplace, leading to a direct loss of productivity.

Gambling in the workplace is on the increase, and there’s a pressing need for more education on gambling harms, and how those harms have an impact on employees and employers.

Our lived experience facilitators therefore bring their own compelling stories to CPD sessions, for engaging and impactful training.

They have extensive experience in delivering sessions to a wide variety of audiences.

What our clients say

Red Card Gambling support project was excellent throughout the whole process. They delivered an excellent presentation to our Year 12’s during their enrichment session (9/2/22) on the pitfalls of gambling and the impact it has on not only your life, but others too. Both the presenters (Darren & Harry) were excellent with the students, giving them an insight into their lives and the problems they have encountered. Students were given information, advice, and guidance on if they found themselves having gambling addictions in the future. Furthermore, Tony Kelly was easy to deal with and extremely flexible with our needs as a school.

I would not hesitate in booking Red Card Gambling again. This is a fabulous outreach opportunity for Post 16 Students.

Mr J. Brack

Hearing Tony’s frank and honest discussion of the devastation caused by his gambling addiction, really highlighted how easy it is for recreational gambling to spiral out of control. I would highly recommend the workshop to all schools and colleges, especially given how accessible gambling is, as young people are simply not aware of how addictive this seemingly harmless activity can be.

The questions that students asked Tony at the end of his presentation, clearly demonstrated the impact that his story had on them.
