The GamCare network of treatment partners provides treatment across Great Britain for those who need sustained help to deal with their gambling problems. Krysallis provides face-to-face counselling services for anyone experiencing gambling problems.

Patrick Lund, Director, Krysallis said:

“I am thrilled that Krysallis and GamCare are able to develop vital face-to-face support for anyone living in and around Scunthorpe, Barnsley and Grimsby who is affected by problem gambling. Especially where huge debts are incurred, the stress and worry can distress the whole family.
