Problem Gambling - Workplace Gambling Awareness Workshop

Our Workplace Gambling Workshops are facilitated by Tony O'Reilly, addiction counsellor and co-author of the book 'Tony10' - which tells the story of Tony's experience of gambling addiction, including the theft of €1.75 million in cash, from his employers (An Post). Tony is a regular guest on national and local radio, raising awareness of gambling-related harm in Ireland. Tony has delivered training, talks and workshops to a wide variety of organisations, including: Secondary Schools, Colleges, Workplaces and Sports Clubs.

Workplace gambling can have a devastating effect on the individual(s) in question, as well as creating serious reputational damage for the organisation.

The service operates on a donation-based model. No donation is too small. We do not want limited finances to be an obstacle to individuals and organisations getting help. (For organisations that would prefer to be invoiced, we can also provide that service.)

Programmes available include:

45-60-minute lunchtime talk (designed for all staff members}. Objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Increase knowledge regarding the risks associated with gambling.
  • Increase knowledge of support services available to people with gambling problems and their families.
  • Help reduce the risk of gambling-related fraud and other forms of harm associated with problem gambling.
  • Destigmatise the issue and increase help-seeking.

3-hour workshop for HR, Line Managers and other relevant staff members. The objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Increase knowledge regarding the risks associated with workplace gambling
  • Improve employers’ ability to identify problematic gambling behaviours in the workplace
  • Support employers in the development of robust workplace gambling policies
