Explore longer term options to prioritise and coordinate evaluation, including ownership and implementation (GC)
The Gambling Commission has published a suite of indicators and metrics designed to measure the impact of its work and to inform future priorities and strategies. The impact metrics are aligned to the Commission's five strategic objectives and will continue to be developed over time as the Commission works to establish new and improve existing sources of data to inform regulatory interventions.
Greo has continued to work with partners involved in delivering the National Strategy to develop and implement robust evaluation of projects and programmes, in order to better understand what works. This includes direct engagement and support for projects and resources available for all partners.
The Gambling Commission's three year strategy sets out commitments to evaluate the impact of its own work, including developing impact metrics and a framework to help evaluate projects and interventions, and working with partners to share data and learning from projects supporting the National Strategy.
A number of projects and programmes are now in place to support and embed evaluation. For example, a key project is that GREO has developed a Gambling Evaluation Evidence Hub for launch in early Spring 2021. The evidence hub has been developed to demonstrate how evaluation can be used to accelerate safer gambling efforts and deliver access to the best tools and resources to guide evaluation activities for Strategy stakeholders.
