Our Outreach service is a relaxed, friendly yet highly successful way of receiving support when struggling with Gambling Related Harms.
This service is unique in that it has been developed through collaboration with individuals with lived experience, tested in many different settings, and has evolved through the constant bettering of our practices as we learn from experience and evidence. Our Gambling Outreach And Living Support (GOALS) service is now a part of the National Gambling Support Network.
An introduction to our service where we will have a chat with you to discuss what your immediate needs are, what we can do to help you now, and what your long-term goals are.
In your next session, we work with you to unpack your current gambling habits, and then discuss how we can put together an action plan to replace these with healthier habits.
We work with you to identify your long-term support needs. If you identify any other support agencies or other services which you believe you could benefit from we will help you contact them.
Following this initial intervention, a trained peer volunteer will be assigned to provide you with ongoing support as you implement the safeguards and continue to develop healthy habits. They and we are there if you need to reach out for more support.
We are currently accepting referrals to our Camden and Islington Community Hub. Individuals must have a connection to Camden or Islington (such as living there, working there or having family there). We are currently also taking referrals from other support and community agencies. To become a referral partner, please get in touch with us.
