Hedge Your Bets

Hedge Your Bets is a 25 minute show presented by the team at the Christchurch Salvation Army Oasis highlighting problem gambling and ways to combat it.

We look into problem gambling: what it looks like, how to help and how our processes as a counselling service work. We hear stories from real people who have dealt with problem gambling and others who have been affected by gambling. 

The show is mainly presented by Laura Hay who is a registered mental health nurse and works for Oasis .

In her role, Laura does both case work with clients and health promotion, where she gives presentations and educates people about gambling.

She’s Scottish, so you’ll hear the accent pop through at times! Laura will often be joined by her co-workers and clients from Oasis.
