Our campaign has 80+% recognition rates and evidence shows that it changes behaviours for the better. This is a significant element in the range of activities delivered under the Research, Education and Treatment banner.”“If a statutory levy on gambling businesses is the only way to generate the money needed for work across the RET agenda, then this change has our support. The Senet Group, is committed to working in partnership across the industry and with the Gambling Commission. Senet can play a valuable role in delivering research and education messaging which creates player behavioural change and reduces the risk of problem gambling.” YGAM focuses on BAME community engagement with CVR link-up August 21, 2020 Marc Etches to step down as CEO of GambleAware in 2021 August 14, 2020last_img read more
