Our demands

We are campaigning to reform the UK’s outdated gambling laws.

The government must enshrine gambling in law as a public health issue. Those actions must include:

  1. Dangerous products made safer e.g. through stake limits & play speeds
  2. Stringent affordability checks enforced across all operators
  3. A statutory levy to pay for independent research, education & treatment
  4. An end to gambling advertising, sponsorship & inducements
  5. Every gambling-related suicide is investigated & learned from
