National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Regulatory settlements funding to provide short-term support to maintain prevention and treatment programmes during lockdown (GC)


November 2020

The Gambling Commission approved the payment of £9m in funds from regulatory settlements to GambleAware to help ensure treatment and support services can continue to operate effectively and withstand additional pressures on their services caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The funds, which are taken from the regulatory settlements the Commission places on operators for social responsibility, customer interaction and money laundering failings, will help to address any increase in demand for such services, support the move of services to alternative models of delivery (such as online) and will build resilience in the treatment and support system during a period of uncertainty.
