What is TalkBanStop?

TalkBanStop is a collaborative initiative aimed at providing support and resources for individuals seeking assistance with their gambling habits in the United Kingdom. It brings together three essential components: Talk, representing GamCare's helpline, which offers confidential support and guidance; Ban, referring to GamBan, an app that enables individuals to block themselves from accessing online gambling sites and applications globally; and Stop, representing GamStop, providing a self-exclusion service from UK-based operators. TalkBanStop offers a multi-layered approach to tackling gambling-related issues, combining helpline support, as well as self-exclusion measures, empowering individuals to regain control over their gambling behaviors.
