GambleAware commissioned a major research project examining the effects of gambling-related marketing and advertising on children, young people and other vulnerable people. The project comprises multiple strands and conducted by two consortia. The first consortium is led by Ipsos Mori in partnership with the University of Bristol, the University of Edinburgh, Ebiquity and the Centre for Analysis of Social Media at Demos. The second is led by the University of Stirling in partnership with ScotCen Social Research, the University of Glasgow and the University of Warwick.

An interim report of initial findings was published in July 2019 and can be seen here: https://about.gambleaware.org/media/1965/17-067097-01-gambleaware_interim-synthesis-report_090719_final.pdf
