Supporting victim survivors of gambling-related domestic abuse – a focus on women in social housing

Social enterprise, Addressing Domestic Abuse (ADA), are seeking information from housing providers in England on any approaches they currently use in relation to gambling harms and domestic abuse and would be grateful if you could take a minute or two to complete an anonymous survey which will greatly assist their research.          

As well as using findings from the survey, they will be undertaking in depth interviews with victim survivors (nationally) and carrying out focus groups and interviews with a range of key stakeholders with a view to producing a free toolkit for social housing (and other sectors) as well as a research report detailing the research findings and policy proposals.  They will be holding interviews with stakeholders and focus groups in the following areas:

  1. Durham/Newcastle
  2. Liverpool
  3. London
  4. Birmingham

 The research project runs into 2025, awarded by the Gambling Commission and using regulatory settlement funds. The research partners are:

  • Durham University
  • Sheffield Hallam University
  • Cranfield University
  • Betknowmore UK
  • Addressing Domestic Abuse
