New Gambling Commission workshops for small gambling businesses announced

01 March 2018

Small gambling businesses are being invited to Gambling Commission workshops as part of a drive to raise standards across the industry.

Operators who run betting shops, bingo halls and arcades are being invited to the events to find out how they can ensure their businesses are fair, safe and crime-free.

Helen Venn, Gambling Commission Programme Director, said: “The aim of the workshops is to engage with smaller operators who may not routinely contact us and to support them in providing gambling facilities that consumers can have trust in.

“The workshop sessions will cover common compliance findings and e-services, assurance statement overview, anti-money laundering risk assessments, multi-operator self-exclusion schemes and local risk assessments.

“There will also be opportunities to ask our compliance team questions during the day.”

The workshops will take place at the Gambling Commission offices in Birmingham on 12 March and at the City Chambers in Edinburgh on 3 May. For those not operating near Birmingham and Edinburgh, a webinar is planned for later in the year.

Small operators interested in attending any of these events (including the webinar) are invited to email smallopworkshops@gamblingcommission.gov.uk
