A Collaborative Approach to Tackling Gambling Harms across the Criminal Justice System.

This event will be Led by Cheshire Police ACC Matt Burton, Police National Lead on Gambling and Criminality. The event will feature a range of key national and international speakers.

Firstly, gambling related harms are recognised as a significant public health issue in Great Britain. In addition, the links between criminality and gambling are now evidence based.

There is a clear need for standardised public health messaging, education and screening for Gambling Related Harm. This could therefore prevent or reduce harm in the Criminal Justice System.

Therefore, our aim is to innovate via the ‘Bet You Can Help’ qualification. Titled ‘Tackling Gambling-Related Harm’, this is FREE for those working within Criminal Justice.
