star this property answer text <p>In its Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice the Gambling Commission requires all operators licensed under the Gambling Act 2005 to make a contribution towards the research, prevention and treatment of gambling-related harm. The Commission does not specify how much this should be nor which organisation should receive it, although it highlights that GambleAware is the principal funding body for RET (research, education, treatment). The gross gambling yield for those operators in 2016/17 was £10.7bn, and they collectively contributed over £8m to GambleAware. In addition, the industry also made donations directly to charities providing support for those suffering from gambling related harm, and funded other initiatives such as Senet’s ‘When The Fun Stops Stop’ campaign. In 2016/17 Senet funding was £1.7m.</p><p> </p><p>In January 2017 the Gambling Commission’s expert advisers, the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board (RGSB) estimated that £9.3m, excluding GambleAware costs, would be required in 2017/18 to support the strategic priorities for RET that it had identified. The consultation on proposals for changes to Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility, published on 31 October, makes clear that government expects the gambling industry to increase funding to meet the targets for future years identified in the RGSB and GambleAware strategies.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>Measuring the cost of problem gambling is a complicated task. The study by The Institute of Public Policy Research “Cards on the Table”, published in December 2016, estimated that the cost to the Government associated with problem gamblers ranged between £260m and £1.16bn. This reflects an estimate of the costs of public services for those individuals, but it does not capture the wider impact of problem gambling and gambling-related harm to the UK economy. The report can be found here: https://about.gambleaware.org/media/1367/cards-on-the-table_dec16.pdf</p><p>GambleAware is commissioning research to improve understanding of gambling-related harm which should lead to a set of metrics which we can use to measure the impact of gambling-related harm on a wider scale. We continue to take problem gambling and gambling-related harm seriously and welcome developments to better understand this issue.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The 2012 England and Scotland Health Survey estimated that the problem gambling prevalence rate among adults in England and Scotland was 0.6% which equated to approximately 280,000 people. The latest data available is through the 2015 Health Survey for Great Britain, published on 24 August (NatCen report), which estimated that the problem gambling prevalence rate among adults in Great Britain was 0.8% which equated to approximately 430,000 people. We take problem gambling seriously and launched the review last year and I hope to publish the findings in October.</p><p>Further information on the 2012 data can be found here:</p><p>http://natcen.ac.uk/media/308703/gambling-england-scotland-headline-report-to-gc-v1-0.pdf</p><p> </p><p>Further information on the 2015 data can be found here: http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/PDF/survey-data/Gambling-behaviour-in-Great-Britain-2015.pdf</p> more like this

However, due to the relatively small numbers of problem gamblers captured in surveys, demonstrating statistically significant correlations to other health and social issues is difficult.</p><p> </p><p>The Responsible Gambling Strategy Board (RGSB) and GambleAware are leading work to measure gambling-related harm more effectively. This will involve exploring existing data, including around correlations with health and social issues, in more detail. In addition, GambleAware commissioned research by IPPR into the cost of public services provided to problem gamblers, including on health and housing costs which reported in December 2016.
