New gambling support service at Calderdale Citizens Advice

Calderdale Citizens Advice has received funding from GambleAware for a new Gambling Support Service.  The Service is offering free training about gambling-related harm across Yorkshire, The Humber and North Lincolnshire to frontline workers (e.g. individuals who work within alcohol/substance misuse, mental health, housing, finance/welfare, safeguarding, social work, social prescribing, adult and children services). 

The Service is offering awareness (up to 1 hour) and training (1 – 3 hour) sessions. The awareness session is an introduction to gambling-related harm and the training session is more in-depth and focuses on how to spot the signs and symptoms associated with gambling-related harm.

Our Gambling Support Service Trainer, Colin Bland, will deliver the training sessions and provide advice to clients. 

For more information about the new Gambling Support Service or to arrange training sessions, please contact Colin via e-mail at or telephone 01422 652250.


Colin joined Calderdale Citizens Advice as a Gambling Support Service Trainer in March 2020.  In this role he provides training about gambling-related harm to frontline staff across Yorkshire, the Humber and North Lincolnshire.
