Double Impact’s Time Out program is a new gambling project that is being developed to better understand the true extent of gambling related harm within Nottingham.

Here at Time Out we are passionate about starting the conversation, asking the right questions and reducing the stigma associated with a gambling addiction.

We want to create a service that is representative of the needs associated with continued recovery, and provide support to those who have been affected by gambling-related harm, whether as an individual, a family member or a community.


Information and Guidance

These three sections provide comprehensive resources for individuals affected by gambling harm, people affected by someone else’s gambling and professionals or referrers that may be in contact with them, including:

  • Overviews of local and national support services and how to access them
  • Debt/financial help
  • Useful tools such as apps, podcasts and gambling websites blocking software

Simply click on the relevant section below to access a series of easy-to- navigate PDF documents which you can browse, download, print or share.

How You Can Help

Have you or someone you know experienced gambling-related problems, or been directly affected by someone else’s gambling?

If yes, we could use your help and lived experience.

We have created three online surveys to help us understand the true extent of gambling-related harm in Nottingham. The survey will take 5 minutes to complete.

Sharing your thoughts and experience will help those affected by gambling and break the stigma and shame that can prevent people seeking support when they most need it.

Please click on the appropriate survey link:

Thank you.
