The resources needed to deliver the strategy
Adequate funding will be essential to the strategy’s success. The actions outlined in this strategy constitute a considerable agenda. The resources currently available to the Responsible Gambling Trust may prove insufficient to deliver their part of it.
As part of our work programme over the next few months, the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board will address the question of resourcing in discussion with the Responsible Gambling Trust. This work will be with a view to responding to that part of our terms of reference which requires us to advise on the quantum of funding required by the Trust.
Our intention is to look at the issue mainly bottom up – seeking as far as possible to cost the different elements of the suggested programme over the three year period. But we will also want to compare the amount currently being raised and spent by the Responsible Gambling Trust with the expected funding levels at the time the Trust’s predecessor was first set up.
