Beyond the Bet
Citizens Advice Gambling Support Service release a new podcast...
Beyond The Bet provides listeners with engaging and educational content around the subject of gambling. If you are a frontline worker, someone struggling with a gambling addiction or simply interested in gambling as a concept, then you are in the right place.
This podcast has been produced by the Gambling Support Service, a project delivered by 12 Citizens Advice offices across England & Wales.
The first episode takes a closer look at what gambling entails, public health work being conducted regionally in the North-West, and the story of one of our Project Workers who has lived experience.
In future episodes, Citizens Advice will draw upon key talking points, including short term and long term treatment, inside the mind of a compulsive gambler, key bodies involved in the gambling landscape, gaming vs gambling with a focus of hearing from those who have been harmed by gambling.
Citizens Advice and Citizens Advice Scotland have been commissioned by GambleAware to deliver the gambling support service across England, Wales and Scotland. The aim of the project is to take a public health and education approach to training and building capacity amongst frontline workers within the Citizens Advice network and beyond, to overcome the stigma attached to gambling harm and help individuals to access appropriate support.
