The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has unveiled its business plan for 2017/2018 outlining its focuses and priorities for the next financial year.
The business plan focuses on 5 key areas:
• Empower and protect consumers
• Raise standards across all gambling sectors
• Build partnerships and understanding
• Ensure fair play on the National Lottery
• Improve regulation.
The commission also invited key stakeholders to contribute to shaping its three-year corporate strategy. Consumers, the industry and public bodies are invited to express their opinion by completing an online form before May 5.
UKGC chairman William Moyes encouraged all interested parties to share their views:
“By no means are we starting from scratch with our long-term strategy, but we are calling on all our stakeholders to share their views about how we and our partners can have the greatest impact for consumers – who are at the heart of everything we do at the Commission.
“These highly valued contributions will help us to continue to improve how we deliver our core responsibilities.
“There is also a need to build and maintain consumer trust against the backdrop of changing consumer behaviour.
“To do this, we wish to encourage the industry to be increasingly innovative to continue to keep gambling safe, fair and crime free.’’
