Support Services

Where ever you are in the country, free help and support for gamblers you are concerned about is never far away. As well as the nationwide Gambling Helpline on 0800 654 655, there is also likely to be a gambling support service near you. And these sessions are always free and always confidential.

You are not expected to provide the individual support that a trained counsellor can offer, but you can help the gambler by putting them in contact with a service. It’s a great idea to have a relationship with your local support services so you can call on them with any questions you have and know who you can refer gamblers to.
