Women and Gambling 29th December 2009
How to tackle this growing problem

There's an increase in the number of women, including young mums, who are gambling. To combat this The National Problem Gambling Clinic in London is offering free childcare to women to encourage them to come forward for treatment. We hear from a former addict receiving treatment at the clinic and Jane talks to the clinic's director Dr Henrietta Bowden Jones and to Liz Karter from the charity Gamcare which helps problem gamblers.
