The new intentions published by the charity are designed to meet the growing and changing needs of those at risk of gambling harms in Great Britain.

As noted by GambleAware, the NGTS is a network of third-sector organisations which provide free, confidential treatment and support for people at risk of, and who experience, gambling harm, as well as those affected by someone else’s gambling.

Following a strategic review process, a new Outcomes Framework and Delivery Model was developed. The process involved in-depth engagement with gambling harm treatment providers, lived experience representatives, local authorities and partners in the NHS.

This, the charity continued, informed the design of a regional first approach across England, Scotland and Wales for the NGTS. It aims to enable all partners to deliver more targeted support to greater numbers of people in need.

“We are excited to announce our new commissioning plans which will build on the success of our current prevention, support and treatment programmes,” said GambleAware Chief Commissioning Officer Anna Hargrave.

“In the context of rising costs of living and increasing numbers of people at risk of gambling harm, we want to ensure our commissioning strategy can respond to the changing environment and the needs of the most vulnerable communities and groups.

“We have built up a wide pool of expertise and knowledge around gambling harms from years of working with our partners and we will continue to use this insight to improve and inform our work and ensure we are able to make a lasting impact on people’s lives.”

In other news from GambleAware, the GambleAware Evaluation team is seeking Expressions of Interest for a learning partner of the Community Resilience Fund (CRF), which is targeted at community-based organisations that are not currently funded by GambleAware.
