Supporting You Through Shared Experience
GamCare and Betknowmore UK are piloting a new peer support service for those affected by gambling harms across London and the South East. This service is called Peer Aid.
Gambling problems and dependency can create challenging and complex issues in someone’s life – you may experience relationship issues, impacts on your finances and on your mental and physical health.
Many clients have fed back to GamCare that a key part of their journey of recovery is connecting with others in similar situations in order to share experiences and support one another.
Peer Aid is designed, developed and delivered by individuals with lived experience of gambling harms. The service will be able to provide both one to one and group support to complement the support and treatment you receive with GamCare.
The Peer Aid team are on hand to make sure you get the most from your treatment plan, have the chance to address your specific concerns, and build a strong foundation for recovery going forward. Peer Aid is focused on inspiring hope for those starting their journey of recovery.
Support will be offered before, during and after treatment through GamCare services in London and we hope to offer this service in other areas soon. Get in touch with the team to register for support now: 020 7801 7008 or [email protected]
You can also register for face to face treatment in London here.
