Anglicare’s free gamblers help service provides support to Tasmanians experiencing gambling harm
If gambling has become a problem for you or your family, you are not alone. Anglicare’s Free Gamblers Help service is here to support you. Our professional counsellors can help you to set and achieve your goals.
If you’d like a ‘self-exclusion order’ that bars you from gambling areas in Tasmania, we can arrange that. We can provide support and encouragement, too. If you are a community member in an area that has a gambling issue, we can arrange an educational workshop.

This service is provided by Anglicare out of our Hobart, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie offices with outreach into the community.
Gambling most often is linked to financial problems. Anglicare also provides a free Financial Counselling service which most of our Gamblers Help clients are able to access also. So if you are in the North make sure to contact us to book a Financial Counselling Service.
