The site is owned and operated by Back on Track Project CIC (company no. 11307909) which is a community interest company that run projects to get help get addicts back on track.

While the majority of Back on Track Project’s work is about helping addicts to recover, a small proportion is spent on minimizing harm before the damage occurs. We despise Gambling Harm and find it completely unacceptable and inexcusable, hence this website. It can and should be avoided at all costs.
