COVID-19 and Gambling

To help make everyone aware of the potential impact of gambling on their own health and wellbeing, and on that of family, friends, or those they may meet in a professional capacity at this time, we have provided a short document with information and resources which can be downloaded for free here.

This includes:

  • Information for individuals on how to stay in control, and where to access advice and support for themselves or on behalf of someone else;
  • Resources for parents, carers and teachers to help them understand, recognise and address gambling and risk;
  • Guidance for organisations on how they can help by sharing information on the advice and support available with their employees;
  • Resources to support professionals to identify and reduce gambling harms;
  • General advice for maintaining wellbeing during this time.
