About the strategy
The aim of the strategy is to make efficient progress in order to reduce gambling harms.
Gambling harms do not only affect the gambler, they also affect the wellbeing of individuals, families, communities and society.
These harms can include:
- relationship problems
- physical and mental health conditions.
Reducing gambling harms requires more information around how these harms affect people in different ways. The aim is to move away from counting problem gamblers and to instead assess more relevant ways to measure the impact on people and their lives.
It also depends on the voice of consumers, particularly those with lived experience of gambling harms.Previous page
