Gambling Therapy is funded through number of avenues including direct donations from individuals and organisations who value and support our work.
Gambling Therapy, Language and Diversity
Gambling Therapy strives to offer support at the point of need when it is most needed. We recognise that language can often be a barrier to communication so we have worked hard to offer native languages where we can. However, we appreciate, that machine translation is still better than no language.
Our ability to offer over 250 languages across the globe, we know, saves lives!
We reach out to provide support where there is nothing and provide comfort to those most in need at their darkest moments.
We recognise that language is only part of the story – Gambling Therapy respects all diversity, cultures, religions and genders however defined. We only see the person (or family) that needs our help and support.
