This webinar is part of a NIHR-funded study (led from King's College London) which is developing a screening question for identifying gambling harms to individuals and affected others and piloting it in three local authorities. It is one of a series of webinars focused on various aspects of the study and on other research on gambling harms. 

The series is supported by Making Research Count, Betknowmore, King's Health Partners, and GamCare and chaired by Dr Emily Finch, Clinical Director for Addictions, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. A second talk will be given by Dominique Webb:

Dominique will be presenting the learning gained from three years of operation of GamCare’s Women’s Programme, how gambling harms relate to safeguarding issues, and how they can be linked to other issues such as domestic abuse, financial and coercive control, mental health and carers/cared-for people, and addictions co-morbidities.
