Gambling-related harm: a public health issue

GambleAware fund-raised £6.5million from the British-based gambling industry in 2014/15. 85% of distributed funds are spent on treatment and harm prevention activities. GambleAware's position is that it is right that the gambling industry stands first in line to contribute to research, treatment and harm prevention services. However, Public Health England, NHS Foundation Trusts and all local health commissioning agencies ought also to provide treatment and harm prevention services for problem gambling alongside services for those struggling with alcohol- and drug-related problems.
