Families Living with Problem Gambling

What is the purpose of the study?

GambleAware have commissioned Sheffield Hallam University to undertake research designed to document the lives of family members, friends or loved ones of people who have been or are problem gamblers. We encourage family members, friends or loved ones to complete our survey which explores the impact of problem gambling on different family members, the coping strategies they use and their help seeking behaviour. The purpose of this study is to gather information about the experiences of family members, with a view to informing the education, prevention and treatment of gambling related harm.

Participation in this survey is voluntary, anonymous and confidential. The survey can be accessed through the following link:

We are also looking for family members to be interviewed about their experiences of having a loved one who is/ was problem gambling, as part of this study. If you are interested in being interviewed, please contact lead research Dr James Banks at [email protected] for more information.

Thank you in advance for helping with this important piece of research. We really need and value your input.
