A partnership between Citizens Advice Scotland and GambleAware, the Scottish Gambling Support Service began in April 2020 and has adapted well to online and remote delivery during the pandemic, in part due to CitA Scotland already having the infrastructure to deliver services remotely to rural areas. Further promotion is expected in Q3 now that project workers have been recruited and trained.
