Tools for change

Hey everyone,

BrittV here, your new community manager. I've been really impressed joining onto the forums at what a supportive community this is, and am really happy to be here, working to make it as helpful as possible for everyone!

A few of you have mentioned some events coming up that you’re worried could cause temptation to gamble. We understand this can be a particularly difficult time.

I thought now might be a good time to highlight a few tools that are available to you, and safeguard the gambling of you or someone you care about.

Many have found using the resources on the Gambling Help Online website to be really helpful. In particular, this page is about extra measures that you can take to arm yourself against the temptation to gamble during this time.

You can read about self-exclusion from venues, blocking gambling ads on your internet browser, and blocking websites from your mobile/iPad here.

For those who are concerned about the gambling of someone close to you, it might be a great time to have a chat to them. You can read more about ways to support gamblers here.

Don’t forget about this Strategies for Change forum where you can read about what others have found helpful, or share your own weapons - we'd love to hear from you!

And of course, don’t forget that there is a whole community here to help, support and understand you, any time.

Stay strong :)
