Funded by the Jersey Gambling Commission, Gambling Therapy Jersey, services include online advice and support for individuals, online support groups, a forum, and a database of useful resources. All of these services are available to anyone with a gambling problem and those affected by someone’s gambling.
Online advice is available in various languages including Portuguese.
All bookmakers have to comply with the Gambling Commission’s 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 licence conditions, which would be a matter that the Commission would take very seriously.
