GambleAware's 11th Annual Conference
The theme for our 11th Annual Conference was:
'A new chapter: working together to deliver gambling reform'
We were pleased to have over 400 people register to attend both in person and online, from across public health, research, education prevention and treatment sectors, as well as the lived experience community, to share insights about working together in this new chapter of gambling reform.
Our Annual Conference featured a varied and engaging agenda, with contributions from the Minister responsible for Gambling, Stuart Andrew MP; the CEO of the Gambling Commission, Andrew Rhodes; renowned health expert, Professor Dame Carol Black; and Children’s Commissioner, Dame Rachel de Souza.
The discussion topics included:
- The future of gambling harm prevention: exploring ideas, research insights and perspectives around policy changes that are needed to prevent gambling harm and what role other sectors can play.
- Best practice in applying a whole system approach: reflecting on how to apply a public health and equal access approach to the prevention of gambling harm, including the need for early intervention and awareness and how lived experience is central to the successful delivery of this.
- What more could be done on safer gambling messaging and behavioural insights: hearing from global experts as to what works, as well as any opportunities and gaps in advertising and regulation, including changes the industry may need to make to improve public health messaging around gambling.
We look forward to continuing to work together in the new chapter of gambling reform.
