Responsible Gambling Strategy Board publishes final progress report on the 2016-19 National Responsible Gambling Strategy

The RGSB has published its final progress report, which provides an assessment on the success and implementation of the 2016-19 National Responsible Gambling Strategy.

The Gambling Commission explains that the report gives a high-level summary on the effectiveness of the strategy and the delivery of its 12 Priority Actions. It identifies that progress has been made in key areas, including Public Health England announcing a review of gambling-related harms, and the NHS ten-year plan identifying the need for action.

The report concludes that more needs to be done to reduce gambling-related harms, and that the new National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms, launching in April, is an important opportunity to make progress and build on previous successes. To access the report, click here.
