Gamblers, Family and Friends In Recovery (GFFR) was born out of the need to support compulsive gamblers, and families and friends affected by someone’s gambling, who are no longer able to attend face-to-face meetings during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our current mission is to provide a resource in finding online meetings efficiently. Additionally, since many of the traditional conventions that recovering gamblers attend have been cancelled for the immediate future, our group decided that an online convention with speakers, workshops and virtual meetings could be an exciting new vehicle for compulsive gamblers to get support and connect worldwide.
On 27 June 2020 we held our first international online convention with much positive acclamation received from participants.
We also host an archive so that this can be a resource for audio recordings of speakers and workshops; primarily those from the June 2020 convention.
We have no interest in replacing or being in conflict with any of the great organisations that currently support compulsive gamblers and their families and friends. Our goal is to support the great work that worldwide programs already achieve.
