Problem Gambling Ireland

Cause Description

Problem Gambling Ireland is a registered charity, dedicated to preventing and minimising gambling-related harm in Ireland.

History

Problem Gambling Ireland was founded by addiction counsellor, Barry Grant, in January 2016.  Barry received a Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Elevator Award in October 2016, which was invaluable in developing the organisation.  We formed as a company in December 2016 and received charitable status in March 2018.  We have provided phone and email supports to people from all over Ireland, who have been affected by problem gambling.  We have also delivered talks, workshops and training around the country, in an effort to prevent people from developing gambling problems.  

Where Your Money Goes

We were delighted to receive our charitable status on March 6th 2018 (RCN: 20154738).  Our new status gives us the opportunity to raise funds, in an effort to achieve our charitable purpose: to prevent and minimise gambling-related harm in Ireland.  

To this end, our fundraising target for 2018 is €100,000.  This will be used to fund the following services:

  • A dedicated helpline service, providing support to anyone affected by gambling-related harm - via phone, email, text and webchat.  The service will be staffed by qualified addiction counsellor(s).
  • A nationwide outreach service, delivering talks, workshops and training to schools, colleges, sports clubs, workplaces and other organisations.  The outreach worker(s) will also facilitate psychoeducational groups for people with gambling problems and concerned persons (family/friends).  

We would greatly appreciate any support you can give us.   As a social enterprise, we also raise funds through commercial activities, should you or your organisation be interested in availing of them.  

Please be advised that, as  a newly registered charity, we will be unable to apply for the Tax Refund Scheme until 2020, at the earliest.  

If you would like to fundraise on our behalf, please contact Barry on 0892415401 or email info[at]problemgambling.ie for details.
