Responsible Gambling supports responsible gambling. Gambling is an exciting adult leisure pursuit enjoyed by all economic groups across the UK. We are committed to protecting children, young people and other vulnerable people from being harmed or exploited by gambling, particularly in regard to gambling advertising.

The majority of people gamble within their means but for some, gambling can become a problem. GamCare is a charitable organisation that provides help and counselling to those with gambling issues. If you want any advice, have any questions on your concerns about gambling or if you are worried about the gambling of someone you know, please contact GamCare online or by phone.

GambleAware is funded by the Responsible Gambling Trust, an independent national charity that raises money from the British gambling industry to fund research, education and treatment activities for problem gamblers.

It provides information to help people make informed decisions about their gambling. They will help you to find out more about gambling and what responsible gambling means, to understand and recognise problem gambling, and show you where to go for further information, help and support should you need it.
