Begin to develop a centre dedicated to provide treatment for both women gamblers and women and families severely affected by gambling, including a residential treatment service for women affected by problem gambling (Gordon Moody)
The women’s service is fully operational and supporting female residents. The staff team are in place and are fully trained. We delivered a 4-week residential program and are ready for the next one to commence. Learning from this pilot, we are currently sourcing a new venue whist we wait for the final venue to be completed. Our outreach and through care have continued to be developed to ensure that our service users continue to receive support after their time in treatment has been completed.
