Strategy implementation update 30 January 2020

The Gambling Commission has today published an updated map of actions and implementation overview
The Gambling Commission has today published an updated map of actions and implementation overview setting out the actions in place to reduce gambling harms in Great Britain. These provide updates to the versions published in July 2019.
The map of actions outlines the activities and workstreams underway by a range of partners, while the implementation overview (opens in new tab) will help stakeholders navigate the key points. These documents together reflect some of the key developments and progress made over the last three quarters and, like the first overview, set out information about emerging work and identified gaps being addressed to help further discussion and target action. These actions are being delivered collaboratively between partners including health bodies, charities, regulators and the gambling industry.
At this stage, the information relating to Scotland, England and Wales is collated together. This is because a great number of the actions are pilots and pathfinders - the findings of which will be relevant to stakeholders across each of these countries. Stakeholders are working to identify the extent to which activities and programmes apply across Great Britain, to understand actions and gaps, and coordinate activity for prevention and education, and treatment and support more effectively.
The actions map in particular now includes a wider range of projects and actions supporting the implementation of the strategy, which were unknown or still in development back in July.
Helen Rhodes, programme director at the Gambling Commission said: “The map of actions and implementation overview remain living documents. The best way we can work together to coordinate activity is for stakeholders to continue to contribute updates on their progress and actions, and share learnings from the many projects underway with all partners under the strategy.”
