Regulatory Settlements

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

GambleAware can accept donations as part of a regulatory settlement provided the agreed use of funds supports the National Responsible Gambling Strategy and accelerates the delivery of the strategy rather than displacing ordinary funding.

In 2017/18, GambleAware received over £5 million towards its work under the terms of such agreements which is allowing it to invest in a range of treatment, harm minimisation and research projects over and above those funded by ordinary donations.

Operators considering including a donation to GambleAware as part of a settlement offer to the Gambling Commission should contact our Fundraising Director to discuss any options they have in mind.
