Evidence and promising approaches for education on this vital topic.

The paper includes sections on:

  • Gambling harms and ethical aims for education
  • The 'do no harm' principle
  • School-based approaches to reducing gambling harm

On the basis of this review, our hope is that gambling education can form part of a holistic approach within PSHE and within schools that enables young people to navigate the present and the future with relevant knowledge, grounded confidence, autonomy, and emotional skill, whilst alive to their inner values.
