The Advisory Board for Safer Gambling (ABSG) meet approximately every two months. In between meetings ABSG contribute advice as required through correspondence and meetings with Gambling Commission colleagues. Meetings will be predominantly online, with in-person meetings held once or twice a year.

The ABSG meetings are routinely attended by relevant Commission staff to seek advice and input to the Commission’s work. Occasionally, sessions may be held in private if the Chair decides this is appropriate.

When the ABSG is developing advice on specific topics, additional academics or professional experts may be invited to join meetings to share their views and discuss relevant evidence.

The ABSG is considered quorate when no less than 4 members are present.

Minutes of the ABSG meetings are published on the website.

The ABSG will also provide input to Commission project teams and participation in Commission working groups. Time limited groups may be formed to develop specific pieces of advice.
