Young People Support Service

We believe in giving every young person the right to be listened too. If you're worried about your own gambling or a loved ones gambling, we're here to help you.

The young People support Service

We are a small team of dedicated practitioners who support young people who are worried about gambling.  We are a non-judgmental team who create a safe space where it’s easy to talk about situations that can be difficult. We aim to make things as easy as possible by tailoring your sessions around you in a way that makes you feel most comfortable.

We offer support to young people (11-18) who are worried about their own gambling or the gambling of someone close to them.  It does not matter how big or small the worry is, just get in touch.

You can contact us directly or someone can contact us on your behalf. We will work together to make sure GamCare is the right service for you. If we both decide this is the support you need, we will link you with one of our practitioners. If not we will refer you to the service we feel we give you the best support.

AGREEING THE WAY FORWARD

Your Practitioner will contact you to arrange the best time to talk.
