National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms
Increase collaboration and develop partnerships to share learnings and good practice, and to raise awareness among stakeholders (Gordon Moody)
Stakeholder Newsletters and Data reports are regularly sent to key stakeholders, and we have additional referral pathways set up with Beacon and Ara. We have established collaborative partnerships in post treatment services with Whysup and Epic Restart Foundation, and we have given presentations to all Gamcare partners on Gordon Moody services. Our complex cases treatment programme is running in collaboration with Adferiad.
Gordon Moody has appointed a Head of Growth to enhance the partnership work being developed with other gambling, substance misuse and mental health service providers as well as with all relevant stakeholders and funders.
Discussions have been opened and referral routes have been developed with:
- Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC)
- National Problem Gambling Clinic (NPGC)
- Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM)
- Leon House
Relations with the Department of Health & Social Care (opens in new tab) Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (opens in new tab), as well as with a series of local MPs, have also been strengthened. This has raised further awareness for the charity.
