It’s easy to access support for gamblers you are concerned about. You can call the national Gambling Helpline team any time 24/7 for free on 0800 654 655. There are also likely to be face-to-face counselling services near you. These sessions are always free and confidential.
As a Gamble Host, you’re encouraged to help gamblers by putting them in contact with a support service. Don’t worry, you’re not expected to provide the type of support that a trained counsellor would offer, but your role in providing a referral can make a huge difference in that person’s life. It pays to get to know your local face-to-face counselling support services. That way you can call on them if questions come up, and you will have greater confidence in referring people to their service when your patrons want help.
