MILLION PROBLEM GAMBLERS
In the U.K. there are 2.3+ million problem gamblers, our population is just under 60 million. This can only increase with advertisements bombarding daytime television and social media.
Our G.A.A.P. Program
The Odds Off Gambling Awareness/Abuse Prevention Program covers all the necessary steps to create awareness and to the best ability, prevent gambling abuse in young people.
Our program is delivered by our speakers who have experienced the silent suffering and devastation of this addiction first hand.
Lacking the correct action being taken to combat this sensitive topic, can often lead to disastrous results, and sadly, fatalities are not uncommon amongst problem gamblers.
