The focus of our professional development centre is to provide learning and development opportunities for all Gambler's Help staff and professionals in related sectors. We provide information and resources to help health and welfare professionals identify people with gambling problems experiencing harm from their own, or a significant other's, gambling and more effectively respond to their needs.
The professional development centre also runs clinical projects and translates Foundation research into practice.
