The face of the gambling industry has changed significantly over the span of our experience. Since fixed odds betting tables appeared in bookmakers and online gambling services with high stake games, readily available increasing, problematic gambling is rising rapidly. Although now becoming more of a focus for the media, in many ways problem gambling remains a hidden addiction. Despite this there has been no significant increase in funding for charities to support problematic gamblers or those close to them. Treatment options for people suffering with a gambling addiction are sometimes more limited than in other area’s of addiction. Services waiting times often result in lost motivation and people dropping out, returning to their addiction.
We are passionate about raising awareness of problem gambling. Our priority, to provide more options for early, effective and affordable support for gamblers and others affected by problem gambling. Our commitment is to making that happen.
