The SFSA is delighted to announce a partnership with Gamtalk – an organisation dedicated to supporting and guiding those with gambling issues in a more positive direction. Gamtalk will join the SFSA as one of our affiliate partners.
Gamtalk was founded by Paul Pettigrew, a young man who has personally experienced gambling addiction and has had his life drastically affected by its seemingly unescapable grasp. However, Paul has managed to turn his life around and is now fully committed to helping those who are facing similar struggles.
Gamtalk’s aim is to educate young people on the dangers of problem gambling, in their schools, sports clubs and youth groups and help bring awareness to an industry that is almost synonymous with all mainstream sports and hard to avoid. By educating young people early on, we can hope to avoid more tragic cases of those whose lives have been destroyed by gambling addiction and offer support to those trying to break the control it has over them.
You can find out more information about Gamtalk on their website and you can follow Paul and his inspiring journey through his social media. Links are below.
