Who we are
"Thank you so much for all the help and guidance you have gave me over the last 14 weeks. With the advice and guidance, you have given me I feel a better person already. Without your support I wouldn’t have been able to rid myself of gambling. With your help my Son has got his Dad back, my Mum has got her Son back and I am me. I now feel happy about the future."
Gordon Moody Association is a registered charity with nearly 50 years’ experience in providing residential support and treatment for people who are severely addicted to gambling. We currently have two residential treatment centres, one in the West Midlands and the other on the Kent/London borders, as well as part-residential women and men specific programmes delivered in separate locations. We also provide specialist on-line support through our Gambling Therapy service and App.
Our specialist approach and experience since 1971 has allowed us to develop treatment interventions that are purely gambling focused, whilst also addressing the extremes of the associated behaviours typically experienced by problem gamblers. We provide the only residential facilities in the UK that are focused just on gambling (rather than dealing with a range of addictions).
As a charity we are reliant on donations and grants for most of our services. The majority of our funding for treatment is currently provided by GambleAware, but we also receive donations from individuals and companies who want to support the work that we do.
Our housing treatment services are generally provided free of charge, due to our funding. Small contributions towards the rent for the residential programmes will require contributions but they are mainly funded by welfare benefits.
We work in partnership with a range of stakeholders, including service users, their families, other gambling treatment services (such as GamCare, CNWL), GambleAware (who commission most of our services), industry partners/operators, and wider partner agencies (including housing, benefits, debt/finance support and other voluntary services).
