Chances: Gambling Support

Our gambling service supports people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness, who are also negatively impacted by gambling. Support can be offered to the person gambling, and/or to friends or family members affected by someone else’s gambling.

We offer one-to-one non-judgemental tailored support to people gambling to help them reach their goals; whether aiming to reduce gambling or stop gambling completely.

The support we provide to family and friends impacted by gambling is focused on them, rather than the person who gambles. Family and friends are welcome to receive support whether the person gambling is being supported or not.

We can provide the following support for gamblers:

  • Practical support with self exclusion from gambling apps, websites and premises and/or setting limits
  • Budgeting and financial support and signposting
  • Learning about why people develop issues with gambling and what happens in the brain
  • Understanding personal gambling behaviour and making appropriate changes
  • How to improve other areas of life to reduce the desire to gamble
  • Developing individual and community connections for recovery
