Evaluation Protocol

Evaluation Protocol (Published Dec 2019)

The purpose of this protocol is to ensure we have a robust framework for evaluation which builds the evidence base to inform future projects and programmes.

Our intention is to produce high quality evaluations which are proportionate, undertaken at the most appropriate time and focussed on the needs of policy makers.

The research and evaluation function is how GambleAware develops knowledge that:

• Builds the evidence for education and prevention approaches and tools, and for treatment design and commissioning
• Informs advocacy and influences policy-making at national and local level
• Informs public awareness.

We have a key role to play in supporting and mobilising other partners (government, academics, other research funders) to undertake research and grow the research and evaluation capability in the gambling field
