UK GambleAware and GamCare reach agreement to fund National Gambling Helpline and more

By site_editor

June 11 2018: GambleAware has announced that it has reached a new agreement with GamCare, covering the period 2018-2021, to fund the National Gambling Helpline and a national network of treatment services for adults experiencing gambling-related harms. 

 

GambleAware has awarded GamCare a 20% increase in annual funding in the form of a grant totalling £14m over three years. This money will fund the delivery of the National Gambling Helpline, provide a national network of talking therapies, and provide remote access help for those who prefer online support. This funding agreement will enable GamCare to continue to develop its delivery capabilities, efficiency and effectiveness of treatment across a broad range of interventions.

 

As a commissioner, GambleAware works to ensure safe, effective treatment which is tailored to the needs of individuals and which is cost effective. The substantial increase in funding for GamCare signals GambleAware’s determination to increase capacity in the treatment sector and to provide the resources to drive up standards.
