Gam Care

London

Description

GamCare is the leading provider of information, advice, support and free counselling for the prevention and treatment of problem gambling. We operate the National Gambling Helpline, provide treatment for problem gamblers and their families, create awareness about responsible gambling and treatment, and encourage an effective approach to responsible gambling within the gambling industry.

The National Gambling HelpLine is free to call on 0808 8020 133 or you can chat to an Adviser on our NetLine. We provide live, confidential, one-to-one information, advice and emotional support, plus we can signpost to further sources of specialist help, including our counselling services across the UK.

Our HelpLine and NetLine services are available seven days a week, between 8am - midnight. Advisers are specifically trained and can discuss what options are available, and they can offer coping strategies to those who want to change their gambling behaviour.

Our online Forum and Chat Rooms are available to anyone who wants to share their experiences. Threads include an area for new members, for supporting a problem gambler, recovery diaries, and information about Gamblers Anonymous and Gam-Anon meetings.

We also offer individual face-to-face counselling and online counselling, at our offices in London as well as regionally through a growing network of Partner agencies.
