Legal help

The RGF funds a legal service specialising in gambling related issues and provides free legal advice and casework. This service is available to both problem gamblers and to people who may face legal issues as a result of another person’s gambling problem. You can make an appointment for a phone or face-to-face consultation. However, your legal problem MUST be directly related to gambling.
