For some the weekly meetings were not enough due to the fact they had nowhere to live and very little support from others.

This year (2021) marks 50 years of  the Gordon Moody organisation providing treatment for those whose lives have been severely affected by gambling addiction.

It also marks the 50th anniversary of the start of our charity’s journey to become the leading provider of gambling therapy services in the UK and our quest to become a force of healing and hope for individuals, families and communities affected by gambling related harm.

50 years of tackling gambling addiction together

This year (2021) marks the 50th anniversary since the founding of our charity and its journey to become the leading provider of gambling therapy services in the UK. Read more about the milestones in our journey so far and our quest to become a force of healing and hope for individuals, families and communities affected by gambling related harm. Gordon House, as it was known then, was first opened in South London in 1971 by the Reverend Gordon Moody MBE. It was set up as a hostel for men who often had nowhere else to live and needed a safe place to focus on their recovery.

The story so far

50 STORIES FOR 50 YEARS

We have teamed up with People's Voice Media to compile a chronicle of stories from people who have had their lives changed through undergoing treatment with Gordon Moody. To celebrate our 50th anniversary year and the impact we have had we aim to get 50 stories from 50 people by the end of 2021, in video, audio and written form.
