Commission consult on new national strategy to reduce gambling harms 18th December 2018

The Gambling Commission has launched a consultation on a new national strategy to reduce gambling harms.

The consultation is in response to the fact that the current National Responsible Gambling Strategy comes to an end in March 2019 and they are developing a new national strategy to reduce gambling harms.

The Commission said they are “… only one of the bodies with a role to play, and will work together with Government, public health, the charitable sector and gambling businesses in order to make real progress to reduce gambling harms” and they “want as many people and organisations as possible to have a voice in shaping the strategy and the arrangements needed to deliver it.”

In conjunction with the consultation, the Commission are also seeking changes to Section 24 of the Gambling Act 2005 on proposed amendments to the LCCP requirement on gambling businesses to contribute to research, prevention and treatment, and associated arrangements needed to deliver the strategy.

The consultation is open until 15 February 2019.
