The 19th to 25th November is Safer Gambling Week, an initiative to promote safer gambling in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The aim is to create awareness of, and advise on:
• How to gamble more safely
• The tools that are available to help you gamble safely all year round
• Sources of more advice and support
The whole of the UK and Irish gambling industry including amusement arcades, bingo clubs, bookmakers and casinos has come together to support the initiative, with many events and workshops taking place across the country and online.
If you are concerned about your gambling habits, please call the National Gambling Helpline on 0808 8020 133. To find out more about Safer Gambling Week or to get involved, visit www.safergamblinguk.org.
