Gambling Support Organisations

Gamblers Anonymous Scotland

Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who have joined together to do something about their own gambling problem and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same. Their 24 Hour Telephone Helpline and our Webchat facility are manned by recovering compulsive gamblers with the first-hand experience of arresting their gambling addiction and finding a better life through the GA Recovery Programme. These members can find you local help.

Helpline: 0370 050 8881 (Available 24hrs a day, 7 days a week)




GamCare is the leading provider of information, advice and support for anyone affected by gambling harms. They operate the National Gambling Helpline, provide treatment for anyone who is harmed by gambling, create awareness about safer gambling and treatment, and encourage an effective approach to safer gambling within the gambling industry. Their Helpline (phone and live chat) services are available 24 hours a day. Advisers are specifically trained and can discuss what options are available, and they can offer coping strategies to those who want to change their gambling behaviour as well as support for others who are impacted by gambling.
