GambleAware launches two new safer gambling ad campaigns


GambleAware has launched a new burst of activity for its Safer Gambling Campaigns.

With the return of football, the charity has launched a new campaign to make sports bettors aware of the risks of impulsive betting.

The new digital campaign features ex-England goalkeeper David James and will run across Sky’s YouTube channel and Twitter page, alongside other digital platforms.

It is free at the point of delivery, provides telephone, online and face-to-face treatment for individuals and groups, across Great Britain. Self-referrals through the 24/7 National Gambling Helpline are the main route for accessing the treatment, which is provided by a network of NHS trusts and voluntary sector organisations.
