Join the ALLIANCE's Scotland Reducing Gambling Harm team for learning and engagement event on reducing gambling harm in Glasgow.

  • Have you, or someone you love, been affected by gambling?
  • Would you like to talk about the problems gambling can cause and how our communities in Glasgow can work together with the NHS, City Council and charities to prevent these?

Help us make a difference!

Join this free online event to talk about how we can work together to make Glasgow a city free from gambling harms.

The ALLIANCE would like to invite adults living in Glasgow who have lived experience of gambling and the harm it can cause to an online Zoom event. This is a chance to to hear about work taking place in Glasgow to tackle gambling harms and share your thoughts on how people with lived experience of gambling harms can get involved.

The event will be the first of many ways of local people to get involved in a 3-year pathfinder project funded by the UK Gambling Commission as part of the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms in Scotland. Led by Public Health Scotland, the project will bring together experts by experience with experts in practice, policy and research to understand how people and communities experience harm through gambling and decide on the collective actions taken in Glasgow to prevent these.
