GamCare is an independent charity and we are the leading provider of information, advice and support for anyone affected by problem gambling across Great Britain. We offer a wide menu of free, flexible and confidential support to those affected by gambling harms.
Our team can support your clients to change their relationship with gambling and improve their quality of life through face to face, online and telephone therapeutic interventions. There is no wrong door to accessing our treatment services.
Frontline professionals have varying levels of time that they are able to spend with clients, and the depth of relationship between professionals and their clients also depends on the situation. As well as a formal ‘screening tool’ such as the GAST-G, we have developed a simpler ‘trigger question’, which will flag the need for a further conversation or screening. The guidance included in this flowchart is designed to help you implement this.
We can provide your team with more in-depth training to help you identify people who may be experiencing gambling-related harms, provide structured brief interventions and refer into the most appropriate services. This training would be provided free of charge. If you would like any more information, please get in touch at [email protected]
We are also very happy to attend team briefings or training events to ensure your teams are confident to refer to our services. Get in touch for more information at [email protected]
