Suhayl Patel wants to end the “sharam” – Urdu for shame – about talking about gambling in Muslim communities.
He is the BAME Programme Manager at Beacon Counselling Trust, a charity providing education, treatment and support in relation to gambling harm in the North West of England, and he’s been working with the Muslim Council of Britain, Lancashire Council of Mosques, and Lancashire BME Network, to promote greater openness in the UK’s Muslim communities around gambling-related harm.
Join us on 25 September to hear Suhayl’s story and find out more about how faith communities can develop a more compassionate response to gambling issues.
