Tackling gambling related harm – a whole council approach

Harmful gambling is increasingly cited as a public health issue which requires a broad response; that is to say, traditional approaches that focus on single interventions do not tend to work at a population level.

Harmful gambling is a complex problem with a large number of different but often interlinked factors - no single measure is likely to be effective on its own in addressing it.

This publication provides an overview of problem gambling, and how councils can begin to try to help local residents who are impacted by it.
