Together-Razem was established in 2006, to provide support services to the Polish and Eastern European communities in Cork and across the country. With funding from the Gambling Awareness Trust in 2020 the group set up the new ‘You are not Alone’ support project for those experiencing difficulties accessing mainstream gambling addiction services due to the language barrier. Anyone experiencing problems with their gambling activity or those who are concerned for others can access professional, culturally appropriate counselling and supportive intervention measures over the phone, via online platforms and where possible face-to-face on site.
