Gambling Therapy is part of the UK Gordon Moody Association, a charity that specialises in residential care for problem gamblers. Staff and trained counsellors from Gambling Therapy have visited Jersey a number of times; they know the local gambling sector and they understand the pressures that a minority of players may face.
For details on local face-to-face assistance you can contact Citizens' Advice, and for online help either visit Gambling Therapy or via email on email@example.com.
You can also contact the Jersey branch of Gambler's Anonymous through either - www.gamblersanonymous.org.uk or www.ga.org.je
All bookmakers and racetracks have to comply with our policy on self-exclusion - they must assist anyone who wants to be refused service in the future. Anyone who wants to make a commitment to stop gambling by effectively "barring" themselves from a set of premises can do so by filling out a Self Exclusion Form (available for download below). Any licensed bookmaker who does not co-operate with a self-exclusion request is in breach of their license conditions, which would be a matter that the Commission would take very seriously.
