GambleAware donates £3 million to two new charity programs
GambleAware is donating 3 million pounds for the development of two brand-new charity programs.
The Community Resilience Fund and the Aftercare Funding Program are two brand-new initiatives designed to support GambleAware in their work.
“Our organization is excited to release 2 new funding programs which are going to develop abilities of different charity organizations for quickly supporting people in their local communities who suffer from wagering problems.”
highlighted by GambleAware’s CCO A. Hargrave.
One of the programs, The Aftercare Funding, was given 2 million pounds to work with charities that offer support services for the people who are getting treatment and help them start their lives from a new page.
Besides the two main programs, GambleAware will make a donation of 150 thousand pounds to small organizations and 350 thousand pounds to the bigger ones.
“Releasing and putting money into the Aftercare Funding Programme is an important step in the process of preventing the damage done by gambling.”
explained O. Baily, Gambling Peer Support Worker at the NHS.
Furthermore, the Community Resilience Fund made to provide immediate funding to groups that serve people who have developed gambling addictions due to the expense of living, received 1 million pounds.
“The Community Resilience Fund is going to help organizations to meet the special needs of the community and the disparities they face.”
added A. Hargrave.
GambleAware introduced an application for people with gambling problems last month and unveiled its Lived Experience Council. This was done so that those individuals can assist the organization during their work based on their experience.
