Young people and gambling

The latest annual survey by the Gambling Commission to identify the incidence and frequency of gambling among young people in England and Wales indicates that 11-15 year olds’ claimed rate of gambling has remained relatively static over time.

We've developed a factsheet on young people and gambling here.

Materials for teachers and youth workers can be found here.

The BBC’s news programme for children, Newsround, featured gambling and gaming in July 2018. You can learn more via the Newsround website here.

For help, support and advice about problem gambling please contact the National Gambling Helpline on 0808 8020 133 or via the NetLine.
