The Gambling Commission has the following strategic objectives, details of which are set out in the Gambling Commission's Corporate and/or Business Plan:

Strategic Objective 1: Empower and protect consumers

Empowering consumers to make informed choices; manage the risks of gambling; and resolve disputes when things go wrong - recognising that gambling is a mainstream leisure activity.

Strategic Objective 2: Raise standards across all gambling sectors

Ensuring the gambling industry puts the licensing objectives at the heart of everything it does and helps raise industry standards.

Strategic Objective 3: Build partnership and understanding, both domestically and internationally

Driving effective and productive working relationships with Government and other partners on gambling and its regulation.

Strategic Objective 4: Ensure fair play on the National Lottery

Working to maintain fair play on the Lottery is our primary role and we also ensure the Lottery operator maximises contributions to good causes.

Strategic Objective 5: Improve regulation

We will promote excellent regulation by supporting delivery of the Commission's objectives through an engaged and efficient workforce, and using soft and hard powers to achieve good consumer outcomes while allowing operators to innovate and compete.
