National Gambling HelpLine to Cease 0845 Number in March

7th February 2017

The HelpLine has been operating a Freephone number (0808 8020 133) since 2012 and gradually transitioning to reduce the number of calls received on the previous 0845 number, which charged callers to contact the HelpLine.

The National Gambling HelpLine is advertised on gaming machines across the UK to ensure that any players concerned about their gambling behaviour know where to turn for free, confidential and specialist support.

If any operators believe that information displayed needs to be updated, they are urged to contact GamCare as soon as possible to take advantage of free stickers, leaflets and posters for their venues.

Dirk Hansen, CEO at GamCare, says: “GamCare is committed to providing an accessible service for anyone affected by problem gambling, including friends and family affected by the issue. Providing a Freephone number is a key component in reducing the barriers for those seeking help and support.”
