GamCare the UKs problem gambling support and treatment charity has announced that from tomorrow the 1st October it will trial a two year pilot scheme to run its support telephone service for problem gamblers over a 24 hour period 365 days a year.
The charity said on its website:
GamCare will be able to provide a 24-hour service via the National Gambling HelpLine from October 2019.
Funding provided by GambleAware will allow the service to provide round-the-clock information, advice and support for anyone affected by gambling problems across Great Britain, every day of the year. The pilot will initially run for two years.
GamCare Advisers can provide a range of free and confidential support to gamblers as well as their family and friends both over the phone and via live web chat. Our team will listen to each individual’s concerns, and can talk each person through all of the options they have available for support – in their local area, online or over the phone.
