About us

Gambling Education Network is a UK charity that is built independently and by individuals with lived experience. Our purpose is to utilise lived experience of gambling-harm to help guide gambling-harm prevention strategies. We were previously established as a C.I.C in 2020 following the success of the All Bets Are Off Podcast. Since then, the team has grown and so has efforts and our commitment to transparently spearhead impact across research, education, and treatment.

Our Purpose

‘The relief of those who are in need as a result of a gambling addiction or gambling-related harm and their families through:

 

a. Improving and providing education towards matters relating to gambling harm and addictions by using an evidence-based public health approach, with a focus on discussions on recovery of those suffering harm;

 

b. Improving the health of those suffering from gambling harm by promoting addiction recovery, the mitigation of harm, and preventing harm in the first place through the development and dissemination of insights, advice and support;

 

c. By engaging with and/or conducting evidence-based research that helps to further understand gambling harm and addictions’.
