GambleAware, the UK’s commissioning charity for gambling harm prevention, treatment support and research, has relaunched its begambleaware.org website.
The charity has chosen to merge the content of its corporate website about.begambleaware.org with its public-facing domain begambleaware.org, thereby developing a central hub for all users and partners.
“By combining the content on one site we hope to make it easier for all stakeholders and beneficiaries to access the information they need,” read the charity’s statement.
Whilst the new website has been pushed live this Christmas, GambleAware will aim to formally launch its begambleaware.org portal in January. The revamped site will be updated with all technical and interactive provisions to optimise the user journey.
In the new year, the charity will also host its eighth annual ‘GambleAware Conference’, which will take place online on 28 January 2021. The event will bring together all syndicated gambling harm prevention charities and national health stakeholders to discuss the UK’s current support frameworks on the treatment of gambling harms and their capabilities for long-term effectiveness.
January’s online event will be the last GambleAware Conference hosted by Chief Executive Marc Etches, who will formally end his leadership tenure at the end of March 2021.
GambleAware has yet to confirm Etches’ successor. The board of trustees and chair Kate Lampard CBE is currently leading an executive search to find the charity’s new leader ahead of critical 2021 regulatory proceedings as the UK government undertakes a review of the 2005 Gambling Act.
