Scottish students’ views on gambling, gaming & cryptocurrency
This research was conducted in partnership by Fast Forward, Tackling Gambling Stigma, and RCA Trust and funded by GambleAware.
The survey was co-produced with a network of experts with lived experience of gambling harm and a pilot group of students.
The findings highlight the impact gambling has on students in Scotland – both their own gambling, and those close to them who gamble.
Less than half of students (45%) said they would be confident in knowing where to refer a friend for support around harmful gambling.
The report contains responses from students on specific support they would like to receive from their institution.
It also makes a series of recommendations and offers potential strategies for gambling harm prevention to be implemented in colleges and universities in order to support students.
