National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Don’t bet YOUR LIFE on it ….. A player-led development for players by players using real lived experience (ARA)


November 2020

Addicton Recovery Agency (ARA) is working in collaboration with PG Solutions and Beacon Counselling Trust to develop 'Don’t Bet your Life on it' - an online toolkit created by people with real lived experiences of gambling related harms. Each have shared their knowledge and experience to help.

The toolkit focuses on giving helpful advice, information and 'what you can do' in friendly bitesize videos.

Topics include:

  • how to recognise when there is a gambling problem
  • tools to help to know what to do, including how to stop and stay stopped
  • practical tips for gaining back control and how to get help
  • where you can get additional support.
