Resources Prepared by GwL August 2023


Please can you send me copies of the "information, resources and training tools" prepared by Gambling With Lives, following the award of £498,000 in regulatory settlement funds in August 2021?


Thank you for your request which has been processed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

In your email you have requested copies of the "information, resources and training tools" prepared by Gambling with Lives, following the award of £498,000 in regulatory settlement funds in August 2021.

The Gambling Commission does not commission projects that are matched to regulatory settlements but instead assesses any proposals that it receives against specified criteria.

As such, no information is held by the Gambling Commission falling within the scope of your request.

There is no requirement for organisations to share copies of any materials they produce as part of a project with the Commission. Regulatory settlements are a possible outcome of Gambling Commission enforcement action, and this may include a financial amount paid by the operator for socially responsible purposes. When this occurs, the Commission may approve the destination of the financial element against set criteria, including that proposals must be for socially responsible purposes which address gambling related harms or other licensing objectives and should demonstrate how they will accelerate progress.

More information on this process and previous destinations is available at the Commission website.

Review of the decision

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your Freedom of Information request you are entitled to an internal review of our decision. You should write to FOI Team, Gambling Commission, 4th floor, Victoria Square House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B2 4BP or by reply to this email.

Please note, internal review requests should be made within 40 working days of the initial response. Requests made outside this timeframe will not be processed.

If you are not content with the outcome of our review, you may then apply directly to the Information Commissioner (ICO) for a decision. Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have already exhausted the review procedure provided by the Gambling Commission.

The ICO can be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office (opens in a new tab), Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.
