Trustees have robust and transparent governance arrangements including:


The expertise & independence of trustees is key to role in the commissioning of national prevention, education, treatment & support services:

  • Independent & expert committees take funding decisions subject to approval of the full Board of Trustees
  • Commissioning plans are guided by the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms having been established initially in a five-year strategy published in 2016
  • An updated Strategic Delivery Plan setting out the charity’s commissioning priorities through to March 2020 was published in 2018
  • Current arrangements are underpinned by an 'assurance and governance framework', agreed between the Gambling Commission, ABSG and GambleAware, and published in August 2012.
