GamCare launches survey for young people

19th May 2016

GamCare is launching a survey for young people aged 12-18 in the UK, looking at their attitudes to gambling and their understanding of problem gambling.

GamCare is launching a survey for young people aged 12-18 in the UK, looking at their attitudes to gambling and their understanding of problem gambling.

Results from this survey will help to inform focus groups conducted with The Mix (formerly Youthnet & Get Connected), aimed at refreshing GamCare’s dedicated site for young people, www.bigdeal.org.uk.

The website receives over 2,000 unique visitors every month, however the number of young people contacting GamCare’s support services is still relatively low.

Mike Kenward, Business Development Manager at GamCare, says: “Three years since BigDeal was launched, this research is an important next step in GamCare’s understanding of current attitudes to gambling amongst under 18’s, and what more we must do to meet the needs of young people at risk of or affected by problem gambling.”

Young people aged 12-18 can access the survey here.
