National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Continuation of Private Sector Gambling Awareness Programme. (EPIC)


April 2021

There has been good uptake here with increased recognition of the effects of COVID on gambling behaviours and the provision of online delivery.

November 2020

EPIC Risk Management use their personal accounts of lived experience to raise awareness of gambling harms and more importantly we empower to take control of their gambling and signpost to the support functions that are available. The initial focus of this programme has been the construction industry, where early research suggests there are high rates of gambling usage.

EPIC continue to engage and deliver this programme in one of Europe’s largest transport projects (HS2). These sessions are supplemented with robust anonymised data capture which in turn enables EPIC to work with the organisations to identify trends and develop future support programmes.
