Following completion of the design phase, which culminated in the publication of a treatment pathway, the 2nd phase of the project has been kicked off. This will develop essential information, awareness-raising, training materials and outreach to enable improved access to care for gambling harms. A project manager at GMCA has been appointed to add resource to the project, and partners have been selected to develop an understanding of the stigma associated with gambling and seeking help. GamHive have conducted a survey of people with lived experience to define which audiences the information and training materials will be targeted at. The project now aims to deliver the materials and start piloting them in the first quarter of 2023.
A pathway design has been developed describing the goals, principles and key elements of a system of treatment and care, and what people need from their experience of interacting with the system. Expected publication - May 2021.
Proposal and delivery plans for the pilot and evaluation phase prepared for submission of funding application in May 2021.
