The goal of Peluuri, which has operated since 2004, is to prevent and reduce harms caused by gambling. We are available to all gamblers, their family and friends, and to anyone who encounters the harms caused by gambling in their working environment.
Help is available in many forms: we offer both professional and peer support as well as self-help tools operating via phone, online and SMS. Our services are always confidential, anonymous and free of charge. Our services are available all around Finland, generally in both Finnish and Swedish.
We produce and disseminate independent information about the harms caused by gambling, which affect at least half a million Finns directly or indirectly. We co-operate actively with other operators in order to prevent harms caused by gambling.
The principles of our activities are customer orientation, confidentiality, anonymity, a non-judgmental position towards the problems of the customer and equality.
Peluuri, along with the Information and Support Point Tiltti, is a part of the Helsinki Gambling Clinic, which also offers outpatient treatment for citizens of the metropolitan area (Helsinki, Vantaa and Kauniainen). The background operators of the Gambling Clinic are the A-Clinic Foundation, the Finnish Blue Ribbon and the government.
Peluuris services are organized together by the A-Clinic Foundation and the Finnish Blue Ribbon. These two background organizations have been active participants in the prevention and treatment of gambling related harms ever since 1989.
The service is financed by the Finnish gaming operators; Fintoto Oy, Raha-automaattiyhdistys and Veikkaus Oy. The time to Fold (Peli poikki) program is financed by the National Institute of Health and Welfare. The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health is responsible for the operational assessment.
NB: The logo of Peluuri is subjected to license and its public use is limited to the producers, sponsors and interest groups of the service.
