There is no excuse now for not getting involved in controlling gambling, either personally or politically or both. There are now several groups, some of them new, campaigning for radical change to gambling regulation or providing help and support for those in trouble with their own or a family member's or a friend's gambling. Here are just some of the groups mentioned by Gambling with Lives (GwL: info@gamblingwithlives.com) which, started a couple of years ago, is going from strength to strength. The Coalition Against Gambling Ads (CAGA: https://caga.uk) wants to see an end to all gambling advertising - you can read their considered arguments and sign their petition. GamFam (www.gamfam.co.uk) provides advice and support for families and friends affected by gambling and also aims to raise public awareness. GamLEARN (@GamLearn) is aiming to provide training and education to those who have experienced gambling-related harm.
