The Gambling Commission is today publishing its latest update in the delivery of the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms.

The latest update, published by the Gambling Commission, provides detailed information on the work delivered by partners over the past year including health bodies, charities, regulators and the gambling industry to reduce gambling harms.  

Tim Miller, Executive Director said: “The updated actions map, available on our website, offers our partners the opportunity to see the progress achieved so far during the Strategy, as well as current and planned projects. The new, more accessible version of actions map demonstrates our commitment to continuously improving how we engage with stakeholders and to making collaboration as effective as possible.

“The past year brought challenges for almost every organisation that we work alongside. Despite that, a comprehensive programme of work has continued to be delivered to support those experiencing gambling harms. We would encourage those interested in the Strategy to look at the new actions map.”

Phil Mackie, Chair of the Scotland Strategy Implementation Group said: “I welcome the Gambling Commission’s publication of the new and improved actions map. This new format will support the Scotland Strategy Implementation Group’s work to collaborate to reduce gambling harms, and identify collective priorities for action.”

The National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harm’s actions map is now available in an accessible web-friendly format. Further information on the Strategy is now available on our new website.
