It enables them to identify and to signpost affected individuals to sources of reliable information, advice, guidance and support through services delivered via the National Gambling Treatment Service.
The programme is accredited by The Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) and is evaluated by Gambling Research Exchange Ontario (GREO). The qualification was developed in collaboration with a number of experts in this field and from the Gambling Health Alliance, including Beacon Counselling Trust, Unite the Union and the Addiction Recovery Agency.
