Local Authority Services
Problem gambling can present a challenge to local authorities as it links to a range of services, such as licencing, community safety, children and families and housing/homelessness.
GamCare are uniquely positioned to support local authorities to develop an integrated strategy to address problem gambling, from promoting safer play through to targeting those with increasing risk and ensuring problem gamblers, and those affected by problem gambling, have access to effective support and treatment.
GamCare is able to work across local authorities to provide an holistic response to problem gambling in each local area. We have developed knowledge and expertise relevant to a range of stakeholders working in frontline roles across your area and have developed training for teachers, GP’s, police and probation workers, youth workers and many more.
GamCare offers a pick and mix package of paid-for training, consultancy, auditing and engagement services, all underpinned by an expert advice and treatment service which is available completely free of charge across the country.
