Gambling Care is proud to collaborate with Family Resource Centres throughout Ireland, to provide a community-based model of family support for the person struggling with their gambling, and their families or friends.
Family Resource Centres are managed by local voluntary management committees, trained to identify individual needs and develop needs-led responses. They are participative and empowering organisations that provide a range of universal and targeted services and development opportunities that address the needs of families, including counselling and support to individuals, families and groups impacted by problem gambling.
Dunlewey Addiction Services was founded in 1987 and has become a specialist organisation in the provision of counselling, training and support services in the field of addiction. Our mission statement “unlocking the door to personal growth, learning and change” represents our belief that everyone has within them the capacity to change and develop as unique individuals.
We operate a free, confidential helpline service 365 days per year from 9.00am - 11.00pm. for individuals affected by their own or a family member’s problem gambling issues.
When a new referral is received an assessment will be carried out and client referred on to our free counselling service for counselling, brief intervention, or health & wellbeing calls.
Free aftercare support programmes are also available.. We will aim to provide an exit pathway for clients which will include opportunities to attend our New Arch Programmes. These groups are not designed as further elements of treatment but rather opportunities for sharing experiences, advice and support from peers that have been through treatment or are in similar circumstances to the client.
The WGRC provides a low cost, comprehensive, community-based one-to-one support service to anyone affected by gambling harms.

The service aims to intervene to provide the person affected by harmful gambling with the necessary supports to promote resilience and maintain well-being regardless of social or emotional background. Anyone concerned about a person’s gambling can make a referral to the service.
