Problem gambling is potentially the most destructive addiction in both the UK and globally. The latest surveys suggest that there are around 1/2 million problem gamblers in the UK, with 60,000 between the ages of 11-15, but the reality is that there are many more due to it being the ‘hidden addiction’. The effects of problem gambling go beyond the gambler themselves with family and friends, workplaces, the community and society also experiencing huge negative effects. EPIC believes that the UK should adopt a four step approach that would see a huge reduction in the issue over the next decade.
