The Commission's position

A new National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms has been launched. The success of this strategy relies on everyone working together to reduce gambling harms through prevention and education, and treatment and support.

We have published a background paper (opens in new tab) for local authorities and local public health providers setting out a rationale for gambling harm being treated as a public health issue as well as a quick guide (opens in new tab) for licensing, public health and related teams to explain the benefits of working together to address gambling harms.
