Donations received between 1 April 2020 – 30 June 2020

In order to be transparent in the context of the current voluntary funding arrangements, and as established in our donation FAQs, GambleAware publishes details of donations and pledges received from those that derive an income from gambling in Britain.

Currently we ask all those who profit from gambling in Britain to donate annually a minimum of 0.1% of their annual Gross Gambling Yield (GGY) directly to GambleAware. We ask those with an annual GGY of less than £250,000 per annum to donate a minimum of £250. (Information on how to calculate the recommended annual contribution to GambleAware can be found here).

Total amount of money pledged and received by GambleAware in Q1 (April to June 2020) as voluntary donations from the gambling industry (excluding regulatory settlements and additional donations): £820,000.

Please see a list below of those who have already donated or pledged their support to GambleAware*. 

On behalf of all those that benefit from their funding, we would like to thank our supporters once again for their much-valued support.

* All those who profit from gambling in Britain can formally pledge to GambleAware by completing, signing and returning our 2020/21 donation form. Please note that in addition to the pledges formally received, a number of operators have kindly confirmed in writing their intention to support GambleAware in 2020/21 and will confirm the quantum of their donations in the coming months.

  • Only donations and pledges for 2020/21 received up to 30 June 2020 are published above. Any donation or pledge received after this date will be published when we next update this section in September 2020.
  • Only donations and pledges made directly to GambleAware are published above. Operators may choose to donate to other RET organisations or initiatives in addition to GambleAware - these contributions are not reflected on our website or financial accounts.
  • Donations to GambleAware for the 2020/21 period can be made between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021. Organisations not listed above may intend to donate to GambleAware in 2020/21 at a later stage in this financial period.
  • Donations from individuals and organisations who do not derive an income from gambling are seldom received by GambleAware. These donations are included in the total but not published above.
  • ‘Additional’ donations from organisations that derive an income from gambling are seldom received by GambleAware – often these represent the donations of unclaimed winnings, dormant accounts or similar.

If you have donated or formally pledged to GambleAware for the 2020/21 period between 1 April 2020 and 30 June 2020 and have not been listed above, please send an email to fundraising@gambleaware.org or call 0208 017 5590.

Regulatory settlements

Within the regulatory process, licenced operators may offer to make donations to socially responsible causes as part of a regulatory settlement with the Gambling Commission (the Commission).

A regulatory settlement is a resolution between the Commission and an operator in cases where concerns have been raised about the operator. In these instances, the Commission and the operator agree on a course of action which meets the Commission’s regulatory objectives, without having to use the Commission’s regulatory powers. Where payments are made in lieu of a financial penalty as part of a regulatory settlement with the aim of addressing gambling-related harms, money could be paid to GambleAware to accelerate the delivery of the National Strategy rather than displacing ordinary funding.

In Q1 (April to June 2020), GambleAware received £8,800,000 towards its work under the terms of such agreements, which is allowing it to invest in a range of research, prevention and treatment projects over and above those funded by ordinary donations.

Please note that only regulatory settlements received up to 30 June 2020 are published below. Any regulatory settlement received after this date will be published when we next update this section in September 2020.
