GambleAware commissions national research to improve knowledge of what works in prevention, education, treatment and support services including proportionate evaluation of all funded activity.

Building knowledge and understanding, as well as helping to grow research capacity and capability, are the motivation for a significant portfolio of over 40 research projects, either underway or in the process of being commissioned.

The portfolio includes a multi-strand, multi-agency project on the impact of gambling marketing and advertising on children, young and vulnerable people; a gap analysis and needs assessment for treatment; and a new programme of work looking at how we can we can ensure our research, education and treatment commissioning is informed and designed by people with lived experience of gambling harms.
