Guidance for submitting a proposal for Regulatory Settlement funding

Guidance around submitting a proposal for Regulatory Settlement funding including what Regulatory Settlement funds are and criteria for proposals.

Who can submit a proposal?

Most organisations who submit proposals are in the third sector or public sector. Regulatory settlement funds must be used for socially responsible purposes and the Gambling Commission has an expectation that research, evaluation, or materials produced will be publicly accessible. This means regulatory settlement funds are not usually suitable for commercial organisations unless working in partnership with other bodies.

We recommend that organisations focus on the quality of a bid and only submit one proposal. If you feel that you can submit more than one proposal, then there will be a maximum of two proposals from an organisation for each round.
