Gambling Help runs a phone service that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is staffed by people who understand how difficult it can be to try to get gambling under control. They're not there to judge or tell you that what you're doing is wrong. They're there to listen and, when you're ready, they're there to provide helpful, practical tips and information.
Gambling Help is:
- completely confidential
- free of charge for landlines and available as many times as you want to use it
- a source of useful free print information, such as a practical workbook
- a service that can advise you about the process of excluding yourself from your usual gambling venues
- a service that can refer you to face-to-face support services near you, and tell you what to expect if you decide to try them out.
