Areas of Strategic Focus for 2024 to 2027

GC Foyer

Alongside our ongoing core regulatory work, we have identified five areas of strategic focus where improvements to regulation can have the biggest impact in delivering better outcomes for consumers, the public and licensees. We have identified these areas based on our understanding of the gambling industry, and developments since 2021, including the award of the Fourth National Lottery licence and the commitments in the Government’s White Paper High Stakes - Gambling reform for the digital age (opens in new tab). They also reflect our experience of regulating including evidence from casework, consumer engagement, research, data and input from stakeholders including our advisory groups.

For the strategic period 2024 to 2027, we will prioritise the following five areas of strategic focus:

  1. Using data and analytics to make gambling regulation more effective.
  2. Enhancing our core operational functions.
  3. Setting clear evidence-based requirements for licensees.
  4. Being proactive and addressing issues at the earliest opportunity.
  5. Regulating a successful National Lottery.

Further details for each of these five areas of strategic focus can be found on the following pages in this guide.
