GambleAware is the leading charity in the UK committed to reducing gambling-related harms. As an independent national charity funded by donations from the gambling industry, GambleAware funds education, prevention and treatment services and commissions research to broaden public understanding of gambling-related harm. The aim is to stop people getting into problems with their gambling, and ensure that those that do develop problems receive fast and effective treatment and support.
GambleAware raises over £8 million each year in voluntary donations from the gambling industry operating in Great Britain. This donation based system was proposed under the Gambling Act 2005 and is prescribed by the Gambling Commission in its Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice.
GambleAware's programme of treatment, education, harm prevention and research are guided by the National Responsible Gambling Strategy, which is defined by the independent Advisory Board for Safer Gambling (ABSG) and endorsed by the Gambling Commission. The ABSG, the Gambling Commission and GambleAware work together under the terms of an agreement in place since 2012.
The use of our logo does not mean that GambleAware endorses a particular gambling product, company or brand. We encourage all gambling-related communications to include our website because it is our priority to ensure that people who need information, advice and support are able to find it as easily as possible.
