Guidance for submitting a proposal for Regulatory Settlement funding
What you can expect from the Gambling Commission when submitting a proposal
You can expect your proposal to be judged on its merits and against the criteria set out when evaluating your proposal.
In most cases we will provide brief feedback on unsuccessful proposals at Stage one and Stage two.
Proposals can be resubmitted, however we would expect you to have addressed any feedback given before doing so.
Our published timescales are indicative and not guaranteed. In exceptional circumstances we may need to adjust timescales, but wherever possible we will inform you of any delays by email or an update on our website.
These funds come from regulatory settlements – which are unpredictable, and, as they are a product of industry non-compliance, undesirable – meaning there is not a regular funding source to put towards projects. We will pause accepting proposals if no settlement funds are available.
Overview of the process
Stage 1 submission
Stage one proposals are submitted to the Gambling Commission.
Stage 1 reviewed
Stage one proposals are reviewed by the Social Responsibility Funds Group. Feedback is then sent back to the organisation.
Stage 2 submission
Those successful at stage one are invited to submit more detailed stage two proposals.
Stage 2 reviewed
Stage two proposals are reviewed by the Social Responsibility Funds Group.
Successful proposals are then matched with available funds.
