Responsible Gambling Trust Issues Tender for New Research

Responsible Gambling Trust logoThe Responsible Gambling Trust (RGT) has issued an open invitation to tender for a new programme of research. The study will explore the question: Gambling-related harm: what does this term involve and how best to measure and account for it in Great Britain? 


The programme, offered by the RGT, provides total funding for relevant research projects of up to £80,000 to be delivered over a period of 12 months.

The research has two principle objectives. The first is an examination of what is meant by the term gambling related harm.

This will include what kinds of harm people experience – ranging from gambling addiction to depression and so on – and who experiences them .

The second objective of the new research will be to understand how these harms can be measured and monitored in the UK; this will allow relevant bodies to understand whether attempts to minimise gambling related harm are effective.

This invitation to tender has been issued publicly to ensure that all capable parties are given the opportunity to participate in the programme of research.

Tenders will be reviewed and funding awarded by the RGT’s Research Committee, chaired by its senior independent trustee, Professor Jonathan Wolff.

The two-stage research programme is expected to begin in January 2016 with completion expected by December 2016.
