Ipsos MORI, in cooperation with the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), presented a report that aims to understand the gambling harms in relation to children as part of the efforts of the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms.

The study was done in collaboration with the Advisory Board for Safer Gambling, along with the organization GambleAware.

The report is a framework that covers a wide array of areas that can harm young people through gambling and will move on to the second phase, where the actual harm will be measured through survey questionnaires.

The list of questions is now included in the organization’s Young Person’s Omnibus survey. Prior to release, the questions will undergo through an analysis to determine the most effective ones that will yield relevant result.

The Programme Director of UKGC, Helen Rhodes, stated that understanding the impact of gambling on children is the commission’s priority.

She also stated that both childhood and adolescence are critical phases in the development children, and that harms experienced during these periods in a person’s life can result in detrimental consequences, not just in the person’s confidence but also in developing his/her potentials.

Margaret Blake, the lead researcher at Ipsos MORI, said that the framework for the study was done in consultation with professionals and experts. It was developed in a series of workshops and focus group discussions. The framework is just a starting point where specific measures will be taken in the future.

Clare Wyllie, the Director of Research and Evaluation at Gamble Aware, said that this framework would serve as a guide to steer the initiative’s focus on the gambling harms to children. She encouraged other researchers in the industry to support the framework, gather data, and provide evidence to fast track the development of this framework.

This framework strategy may now be viewed at:
