Gambling Help Services
Since 1995, Gambling Help Services have been supporting people to make the changes that will help create a brighter and more hopeful future.
Gambling can become a problem when it consumes more money and time than a person can afford, and begins to affect other aspects of their lives, such as their psychological and emotional well being, relationships with family and friends, finances, work and other leisure activities.
Workers in the Gambling Help Service team are diverse and come from a number of different cultural backgrounds and professional skills. Many of our workers are bilingual.
We are non-judgemental and provide comprehensive, professional services where clients feel safe and comfortable.
If gambling is affecting you or someone you love but you are not sure what to do… we can help.
Our belief in the transformative power of relationships lies at the heart of everything we do.
As a not for profit, secular, community organisation whose objective is to relieve the suffering, distress and helplessness of vulnerable and disadvantaged people, so as to enhance their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
We do this by;
- providing family and relationship services which alleviate the suffering of children, adults and families with high levels of distress and complex needs, and in particular reducing distress, suffering and helplessness caused by domestic violence, child abuse, trauma and dislocation
- providing services to people who are living in poverty, who are suffering from social isolation, or who lack financial resources
- assisting people in situations of misfortune or helplessness to cope and to develop skills to become more self-reliant and resilient
- providing assistance, support and treatment for people living with disabilities and/or illnesses including those with:
- blood borne viruses and other communicable diseases;
- Drug, alcohol and gambling addictions;
- adult mental health conditions such as depression, suicide risk and trauma related conditions;
- child mental health conditions such as autism, depression, behaviour disorders and trauma related conditions; and
- providing other services which assist us to meet these objectives.
