National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Expansion of specialist gambling harm treatment provision across all of Wales (ARA)


November 2020

ARA have increased the availability (pre-COVID) of face-to-face treatment across North and South Wales, at sites including Wrexham, Bangor, Aberystwyth, Swansea, Cardigan, Mountain Ash, Pontypridd, and Cardiff During 2019-20 ARA treated 36% more gamblers and affected others from Wales than in 2018-19. Even after accounting for drops in referrals during the COVID-19 lockdown, they are on course to increase treatment in Wales by a further 15% for 2020-21.
