Commission on Crime and Gambling Related Harms

Research commissions

The Commission on Crime and Gambling Related Harms aims to answer the following questions:

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

To support this work the Howard League will be commissioning research. It has been agreed that the first pieces of research will focus on

  • Sentencers’ understanding and treatment of crime and gambling related harms
  • The lived experience of people who have experienced crime and gambling related harms
  • The prevalence of gambling related harms among those committing crimes

The research commissions are advertised separately. Please register your interest in receiving information about the research commissions by emailing Anita Dockley.
