Reporting serious incidents

GambleAware is a commissioning body and provides grants to a number of other charities, directly and indirectly.  Where these charities experience a serious incident, the responsibility for reporting it to the Charity Commission lies with their own trustees.

If a serious incident report relates to activities funded by GambleAware, we require that we be provided with a copy of the report, subject to any redaction required by GDPR.

The GambleAware Board will decide independently whether to submit their own report to the Charity Commission in respect of a serious incident at a funded charity if it is considered there is an additional risk to GambleAware in its role as commissioner, regardless of whether the commissioned body’s trustees report a particular incident.
