[ANON POST] Support for compulsive gamblers in present day uk

Setting: 2010/ London, UK.

Does the UK branch of Gamblers Anonymous use sponsors - ie an experienced member of the group allocated to a new member to mentor them and provide support and guidance?

I've searched variations of gambler or compulsive gambler + uk or england + sponsor or sponsorship and looked through the Gamblers Anonymous UK forum. The only results I've had are on the UK gambling industry sponsoring initiatives to help compulsive gamblers.

I've searched the tags in this community, but couldn't find any posts which answered this.

I know GA in the US and Canada use sponsors, but in the absence of any positive evidence that the UK branch does, I don't want to assume.

Thanks for any help.
