Seniors and Gambling

Community Links is in Phase III of its Seniors and Gambling Project. We travel to different parts of the province to offer presentations to seniors clubs and community groups. The presentations include a dramatic skit put on by volunteer actors about how friends might approach someone with a gambling problem. The session starts with some gambling information and trivia (with prizes), then right into the skit, which usually leads to some laughter!  No stand is taken for or against gambling, which is a safe leisure activity for many. However, 180,000 Nova Scotians report that they know someone who is experiencing harm from gambling.
