Gambling Awareness Trust are supporting Responsible Gambling Week 2019. It is a great opportunity to raise awareness about the harm gambling can cause if it gets out of control and about the range of services that are available to help anyone that may be having difficulties because of problem gambling.

Gambling is a leisure activity enjoyed by many adults. However, it can cause severe difficulties emotionally and financially if it becomes a problem. Not only is the gambler affected, but loved ones, friends, and work or work colleagues can be affected.

Responsible Gambling Week 2019 runs from 7th – 13th November 2019 and is a campaign led by the gambling industry that aims to create a conversation with customers, staff and the wider public about gambling responsibly, driving awareness of:

  • how to gamble responsibly;
  • the tools that are available to help people gamble safely all year round;
  • sources of more advice and support.
