Promoting Resilience

Young people are exposed to gambling in a variety of ways including advertising during sports events, notifications of in-app purchases and trading in online games, the behaviour and habits of reality TV stars, and the placement of high-street betting shops. Gambling is a popular pursuit amongst Britons, with at least two-thirds of the population spending money on a gambling activity in the last year.
