Gambling Research, Education and Treatment

The GREAT Network Wales, hosted at Swansea University, exists to drive research, education and treatment for all forms of gambling-related harm in individuals, families and communities. 

Gambling is an increasingly popular recreational activity, but for a significant and growing proportion of the population, it can spiral into addiction and lead to several forms of related harm.  

As a network for researchers, service providers, people with lived experience and policymakers, GREAT develops effective treatments for problematic or excessive gambling, educational and consultancy services for all sectors, produces high-quality, peer-reviewed impartial research, and serves as a clearinghouse for scientific and policy-based evidence regarding gambling and its related harms.
