Anna Hemmings, Chief Executive Officer, Gamcare talks to Peter White
For those of our readership not familiar with the charity ‘GamCare’, could we commence this interview with an explanation starting with when it was established and how it is funded?
GamCare was established in April 1997 with the intention of helping and supporting those affected by problem gambling, and also to help the gambling industry to better understand how they can bring social responsibility into the heart of their businesses.
There has certainly been a change in the landscape of the gambling industry since then, however our core focus is still the same. We provide information, advice and support for anyone affected by problem gambling across Great Britain, and we also work to minimise gambling-related harms by providing a range of training, consultancy and targeted outreach work.
