Sheffield Mind is looking for an enthusiastic project worker to join our Gambling Awareness Project Sheffield (GAPS) team.

GAPS will work to ease distress; build coping resilience and reduce feelings of isolation and guilt which can increase the risk of suicide.

Over the two years of the service (June 2022 to May 2024) GAPS aims to increase understanding of the nature and impact of gambling-related harm and empower young people to act as peer educators.

Ideally you will have personal or professional experience / knowledge of problem gambling / gaming and be able to talk to a wide-range of people.

You will meet with local groups and organisations to tell them about GPAS, as well as work with young people aged 11-25 using predominantly (but not exclusively) online resources and peer support.

GAPS will not provide direct interventions (such as, for example, counselling), but will signpost to services.
