Support us



Welcome to the forum. This space is for anyone who has been arrested, spent time in prison, or been on probation and has been affected by problem gambling. You can use this page to share your story and seek support from others who have had similar experiences.

Not sure where to start? Here are some simple prompts that you could cover in your first post:

  • What has brought you to the forum today, is there anything particular on your mind?
  • How long have you been gambling and what did you mainly gamble on?
  • Do you feel like your gambling contributed to what happened to get you arrested?  If so, how?
  • Did being arrested change how you gamble?
  • What has led you to seek support now?
  • If you were in prison, did you gamble inside?  Did you feel able to ask for support there and if you did, did you receive any support, either in person or on the Helpline?
  • Have you received any support outside of prison? If so what was it, who provided it and did you find it helpful?
  • Is there anything else that GamCare might be able to support you with?
