GamblingCare

GamblingCare* was established in March 2019, and is funded and administered by the Gambling Awareness Trust, an independent charity which funds research, education and treatment services to help minimise gambling-related harm in Ireland. The Gambling Awareness Trust charity is funded by donations from the online and retail betting and gaming industry in Ireland.

The main aim of GamblingCare.ie is to broaden public understanding of responsible gambling and to help those that do develop problems, or know someone that has developed a gambling problem to get the support and help that they need quickly and effectively.

A gambling problem or addiction can significantly impact your life and the lives of those closest to you. For many people, phoning a gambling helpline or seeking help from anyone at all can be a difficult step to take.  Talking about your gambling, or someone else’s gambling, can bring huge relief and help you start to get your life back on track. There are many support organisations available to you, so you don’t have to make changes all by yourself.

Many people can, and do, stop gambling. A supportive and professional counsellor or organisation can encourage and motivate you to take all the steps required to regain self control and direction in your life.  They have vast experience in this area, and can support and advise you through whatever path you take.

 

If you are anybody you know is affected by problem gambling, please contact the Dunlewey National Helpline on 1800 936 725.
