Gambling Has Put Thousands At Risk In Leeds


The report issued by the Leeds City Council, there are already 10,000 problematic gamblers in the city.


The authors of this report have claimed that the people who are earning low income or are suffering through mental disorders or illnesses are at high risk of getting trapped in these type of problems.

A paper of research done at the Leeds Beckett University claimed that there are around 30,000 people who may join this risk of gambling.

According to the Local Democracy Reporting Service, there is a Leeds Gambling Clinic opened last month. This clinic is going to help all those people, who are the culprit of gambling in this city.

This services is opened since September and this is a result of collaboration between Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LYPFT) and the charity called GamCare.

The report issued by the Leeds Beckett further said that there is a lot of need of addressing the issue of poverty and information has to be circulated about gambling problems so that the people could stay away from this curse.

NHS is right now helping young gambling addicts. In order to avoid the crackdown, the bookmakers have had pledged £100 m.

The report further added that, “at risk” are those gamblers who just do not have the right understanding of gambling. They are actually not the problem makers.
