Call for evidence

Commission on Crime and Problem Gambling

The Howard League’s Commission on Crime and Problem Gambling will run for three years and aims to answer the following questions:

  • What are the links between crime and problem gambling?
  • What impact does this link have on communities and society?
  • What should be done?

The Commission will investigate patterns of crime linked to problem gambling and the societal harms that link crime and problem gambling, before seeking to make recommendations for government, the gambling industry and within the criminal justice system.

The Commission includes experts from the fields of public health, gambling, law, academia and criminal justice, as well as people who are expert by experience.

Call for written evidence

The Commission is keen to receive written evidence from academics, practitioners and policy makers within the criminological; gambling industry; legal and health disciplines; and people who are expert by experience.

Following a successful first call for written evidence, we welcomed examples of international evidence examining the links between crime and problem gambling. We will be highlighting the outcomes of this first round shortly.
