Thursday March 21,2013 : GAMCARE CALLS ON INDUSTRY TO DISPLAY HELPLINE IN ADVERTISING
Voluntary inclusion of problem gambling helpline number
Problem gambling association GamCare president Lord Sharman called for the gambling industry to display GamCare's freephone help line number on all gambling advertising.
Lord Sharman praised the industry for their increasing awareness of social responsibility during a session at the House of Lords earlier this week and expressed gratitude for their voluntary contributions which have enabled GamCare to carry out its work.
At present, the gambling industry displays the GamCare Freephone HelpLine number in all gambling venues, but Lord Sharman hopes to see the number appear on all forms of advertising related to gambling.
