People with gambling problems are now able to self-exclude themselves from online gambling websites due to a project launched as a product of The Remote Gambling Association (RGA), GamCare and the Gordon Moody Association collaboration.
The project aims to streamline and make the process of self-exclusion more efficient as a harm minimization measure. Clients will receive help from counselors at GamCare and Gordon Moody, while simultaneously self-excluding themselves from all the RGA member sites that they have accounts with.
Clive Hawkswood, chief executive officer of the RGA said: "This is an example of how the remote gambling industry takes very seriously its responsibilities to people who experience problems with their gambling,"
"To have all this information in one place that is easily accessible, will potentially be so valuable and is a great start to creating an effective preventative measure for people who find themselves in need of help.’’ adds Ruth Champion, Director of Therapy at the Gordon Moody Association.
