Gambling Support Services
Gambling can become a serious problem, with impact on personal, family, and community life. From betting on football to purchasing lottery tickets, betting shops, licensed arcades, casinos, and bingo premises, it can feel like gambling has a presence everywhere.
As our digital world continues to grow, gambling has reached new heights, such as in-app purchases required to allow games to progress. The industry generated £14.4 billion in 2018/19.
