Delivery of Gambling Related Financial Harm project to develop cross-sector (gambling, debt advice, finance and support) network to improve understanding of harms, mitigations and best practice (GamCare)
The second year of the Gambling Related Financial Harm project runs October 20 to end September 21. For the second year we are running 4 targeted workshops on specific, emerging topics for thought leadership and discussion from representatives across key sectors (finance, gambling treatment, debt, industry). The first workshop was in March 21 on the subject of gambling blocking loopholes. It was well attended with excellent insights and suggestions for change. Summary document due for external dissemination. The next workshop in June 21 will relate to young people, age verification and financial harm.
Gamcare has now delivered the first full year of the Gambling Related Financial Harm (opens in new tab) programme, bringing together an advisory panel across banking, gambling and debt sectors. The project has produced a set of tools and guidance for those sectors to help identify and refer those people harmed by gambling.
