RGF believes that the prevention and minimisation of problem gambling and gambling-related harm and the treatment of those whose gambling is problematic, should be informed by sound research and reliable evidence.


We intend to develop an extensive evidence base on problem gambling and gambling-related harm in Britain, set within an international context. We commission and collect research on a range of treatment approaches, on prevention/education, and consumer and operator responsibility. In addition, we aim to significantly develop the capacity for research on problem gambling and gambling-related harm in Britain.
