There are at least 400,000 people currently experiencing serious gambling related harm in the UK, with a further 2 million at risk (Public Health England). Out of control gambling can damage relationships, finances, and physical and mental health. At work, productivity, ambition, and engagement may be affected, as well as adherence to safety protocols and vulnerability to criminal activity.
BetknowmoreUK was established by individuals with lived experience of gambling harms, who now use that insight and knowledge to help others.
We do this by supporting individuals harmed by gambling using 1:1 peer support and group work. And, through our training arm, we educate professionals in many sectors from healthcare through to the gambling industry itself.
Our Worksafe programme was created to provide tailored support to employers, as they develop a wellbeing at work approach to gambling harms whilst at the same time mitigating business risk.
