One of the responsibilities of the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board is to advise the Gambling Commission, and through them Government, the gambling industry and other stakeholders, on an appropriate strategy to promote responsibility in gambling and to reduce or mitigate gambling-related harm. The existing strategy, published in December 2012, covered the three years 2013-14 to 2015-16.
The new draft strategy is intended to cover the next three year period, 2016 to 2019. It draws on a number of helpful suggestions made to the Board since we announced our intention to review the strategy earlier this year.
If the new strategy is be effective it needs to be clear about its objectives, rooted in practical experience and as far as possible agreed by all those who will have responsibilities for implementing parts of it.
For the first time the Board is therefore publishing the strategy in draft to give others the opportunity to contribute before it is finalised.
