A new, fully integrated support service for people with gambling problems is launching in Leeds.
The Leeds Community Gambling Service is the first support service of its kind and involves an ambitious collaboration between leading gambling support charity GamCare, Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LYPFT) and Leeds City Council. The new integrated service in Leeds is being funded by national charity GambleAware and will form part of the wider NHS Northern Gambling Service funded by NHS England.
The NHS Northern Gambling Service will provide care for those with the most severe addictions and provide treatment and support for people with additional and complex mental health conditions or impaired social functioning and those who may present with greater risk such as a risk of suicide. Services will also support family and friends who have been impacted by gambling problems.
