Looking for help, information or advice
If you have questions or concerns about your own gambling or about that of a friend or family member, a good place to start is the National Gambling Helpline on Freephone 0808 8020 133.
The National Gambling Helpline is operated by GamCare and offers free and confidential support, information and advice on problem gambling either via telephone (Helpline), online (NetLine) or text. It can also include direction to chat room forums and printed information depending on what you need and when.
GamCare’s experienced staff can provide information and advice, refer you to other sources of help and also tell you what may be available locally. This can include referral to sources of help about money and debt advice, along with identifying other suitable forms of personal help suchas counselling, and crisis support. GamCare also offers free face-to-face and online counselling for those affected by a gambling problem either directly or via its network of treatment providers across Britain.
Problem gamblers may benefit from help directed specifically at getting their gambling back under control, as well as help directed at managing the consequences of problem gambling such as debt, stress and relationship breakdown.
