Building Knowledge of Minority Communities’ Lived Experience of Gambling and Gambling Harms across Great Britain

GambleAware has awarded a £300,000 grant to build knowledge about the lived experience of minority communities in relation to gambling to inform delivery of our Organisation and Commissioning Strategy over the next five years. ‘Minority communities’ includes minority ethnic, minority religion, and minority language communities.

Building knowledge of stigma related to gambling and gambling harms in Great Britain

GambleAware has commissioned a scoping paper that will establish what is known about stigma related to gambling and gambling harms. Knowledge about stigma, and the discrimination it drives, will inform all GambleAware’s commissioning activity to prevent gambling harms, including public awareness campaigns, education, treatment, and research.

Building Knowledge of Women’s Lived Experience of Gambling and Gambling Harms across Great Britain

GambleAware has awarded a £250,000 grant to build knowledge about the drivers of gambling participation and of gambling harms experienced by women, and to understand the differences among sub-groups of women. The knowledge accrued from this research will be used to inform GambleAware’s commissioning practices.

Lived Experience Programme 2021/22

It is well demonstrated that the meaningful involvement of those with lived experience is crucial at all levels of service delivery, policy and legislation formation, research, and civil society discussion and debate.

GambleAware is keen to ensure that the early intervention and treatment services commissioned are what people want and need, and are effective in preventing and reducing gambling harms; ensuring the voice of people with lived experience is heard is key to that.
