Treatment Needs and Gap Analysis in Great Britain – A Synthesis of Findings
S. Dinos

In 2018, GambleAware commissioned a programme of studies to review the current need, demand and use of gambling treatment and support in England, Scotland and Wales, to identify where there are geographic and demographic gaps in provision; and, to detail the demand for treatment and support by gamblers and affected others in Britain.
Whilst previous research provides data on problem gamblers (and those experiencing lower levels of gambling harm) within the general population, there is little (if any) research on the size and characteristics of those seeking or accessing treatment and support for gambling harms. The primary aim of this report is to synthesise findings across all strands of this programme.
