This report from UK think tank Demos looks at how collaboration can help design safer gambling?

Safety in gambling is under enormous scrutiny. It is a discussion taking place against a backdrop of change, with gambling becoming increasingly available to a population spending more and more time in digital spaces. To facilitate this discussion, we held two roundtables with Playtech, one of the largest suppliers of gambling products in the world, bringing together the gambling industry with academics, policymakers and charity experts. The objective was to share insights between all interested parties and reduce gambling-related harm. Safer by Design provides an overview of these discussions and details the key themes that emerged. It also provides a suggested framework for future measures.
