Approach and delivery of the strategy

The National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms was launched in April 2019 and ran until April 2022. The content and actions in these pages refer to programmes of activity to reduce gambling harms during that time.

We want to make better and faster progress to reduce gambling harms - that is the sole and critical aim of the National Strategy for 2019 to 2022.

To drive this faster progress, we are putting the full weight of regulation behind this strategy by taking on ownership of it from our advisers, now named the Advisory Board for Safer Gambling, previously Responsible Gambling Strategy Board.

We welcome the positive contribution that their previous strategy had on ensuring that gambling harms are recognised as a public health issue.
