RGSB Launches New Strategy

12th April 2016

A new strategy aimed at minimising gambling-related harm over the next three years has been published by the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board.

A new strategy aimed at minimising gambling-related harm over the next three years has been published. The National Responsible Gambling Strategy sets the agenda for a range of organisations including gambling operators, regulators, commissioning organisations, government, trade bodies, treatment providers and a number of other public agencies. It has been produced by the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board (RGSB). 

Sir Christopher Kelly, RGSB chairman, said: “The overarching aim is to minimise gambling-related harm. Gambling-related harm goes wider than the harm experienced by those identified as problem gamblers by existing screening tools - it can also affect the families of gamblers, their employers, their communities and society more widely... The strategy represents a huge opportunity to improve social responsibility in gambling, and minimise gambling-related harm.”
