Developing a network for people with lived experience of gambling harms
Expert Link has been appointed by Gamble Aware to work with communities of people with lived experience of gambling harm to design and deliver an independent, inclusive, and representative GB-wide network for these communities.
The ambition is for the network to be able to make a real difference to people’s lives, with a voice that can meaningfully participate and influence national debate and policy making across the gambling sector.
We are reaching out to people with lived experience of gambling harm to join us in creating some real change.
Developing a network
As a peer-led organisation we believe that for a network to be successful it is important that everyone has the opportunity to be involved from the beginning in the key decisions that will determine the success of the network.
We are therefore looking to bring people together at an on-line information sharing event to both share what we know about resources, timelines and opportunities for involvement; and also discuss the best ways we can communicate and work together.
We will then begin to formally connect people so that together we can make the key decisions to ensure the network meets our shared ambitions.
If you are interested in playing a role in the development of the network, or simply want to find out more information about what it is about, we invite you to join us at the date most convenient for you. Everyone with lived experience of gambling harm is welcome to join us in this safe space.
