GambleAware is the leading charity committed to minimising gambling-related harm in Great Britain. As an independent national charity we fund education, harm-minimisation and treatment services and commission research to broaden public understanding of gambling-related harm. Our 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.
Since our launch in April 2012, we have established the organisation as a respected and independent charity working in partnership with the British-based gambling industry, the Gambling Commission and the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board (RGSB), as well as the Government via the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and an array of treatment providers. But we are now at a particularly exciting crossroads in our evolution and, with the foundations in place, are poised to achieve much more.
While we are committed to working in co-operation with, and enjoy the support of, our funders across the Gambling Industry, we are now taking steps to become even more independent and influential. To ensure we make the most of the opportunities, we are now seeking independent Trustees to join a formidable Board and offer their expertise, wisdom and objectivity in the pursuit of our aims and ambitions. This is your chance to make a real difference. We are particularly interested in hearing from senior individuals who offer personal and professional reputation and standing in the fields of health and/or social care, the criminal justice sector or those working with vulnerable communities, those with a deep understanding of government and public policy and those from within health-related research or academia.
Wherever you are working, you will value the important role that GambleAware plays and will be as motivated as we are by the chance to minimise and address gambling-related harm.
