National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Piloting a new approach to help those recovering from gambling related harms, this project aims to build resilience, prevent relapse and provide support to restart their lives via a three-stage education programme. (Epic Restart Foundation)


May 2022

Over 70 people took part in EPIC Restart Foundation's pilot programme. Our activities focus on continual growth and improvement, helping our delegates develop their own transformational action plan with positive daily habits that sustain recovery - reducing the risk of further gambling harms being suffered due to relapse. External evaluation noted 'very promising results' and 'substantial growth across several areas including knowledge, confidence, skills and self awareness. In Year 2 we have focussed on increasing the accessibility, appeal and impact of the programme and seen a substantial increase in numbers of people reaching out for our support.
