How we can help you


You can chat to an Adviser who is trained to listen and help anyone affected by gambling harms. Simply talking about it can be a huge relief, and we can also connect you with specialist support across Great Britain, tailored to you.


Whatever you say will stay between you and the person you're talking to, and you don't need to give any personal details if you don't want to. We care about your confidentiality, so unless we're concerned about your safety, we won't pass on any of your information without letting you know.


Calls to the National Gambling Helpline are free from landlines, mobiles and BT phone boxes within Great Britain. But just so you know, some other public phone operators may charge you to call.


When you contact us, you can take as much or little time as you want to discuss your concerns. We're here to help you at the beginning of your journey - and then we'll guide you to tailored treatments, plus more long-term and frequent support if you want it. These include online forums and chat groups, gambling recovery courses, one-to-one therapeutic support, residential treatment centres and NHS outpatient treatments.

Speak with us today.
