UNDERSTANDING HARMS

It is vital to our organization that we continue to raise awareness of the growing rate of gambling related harms. With shocking statistics such as 55,000 children addicted, on average one gambling related suicide a day and for each addict it is estimated there are at least 6 affected others, it is becoming increasingly urgent that we now treat this as a public health issue.

As an organisation, one of our key aims is to reduce the stigma attached to gambling addiction. We work closely with other organisations and with the wider community to open up these conversations, tackle the misconceptions and educate others around this topic.
