CARE – gambling research January 2018

A poll of adults in Britain on behalf of CARE, looking at gambling.

  • The majority of adults in Britain (63%) say that problem gambling is a significant issue in Britain.
  • The same proportion (61%) also say that the UK Government should make it compulsory for all gambling companies to pay a larger and equitable proportion of their profit or turnover towards funding help for problem gamblers.
  • There is an age difference in views on gambling; younger adults are more likely than their older peers to say that problem gambling isn’t an issue (20% of 18-34 year olds say this, significantly more than the 13% of those aged 55+).
  • Younger adults are more likely than older adults to say that they know someone personally who has had a problem with gambling (35% of 18-35 year olds versus 21% of those aged 55 and over).
