Welcome to the first edition of the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms e-newsletter.  

Since the launch of the Strategy, we have worked with partners and stakeholders across England, Scotland and Wales to shape its implementation and this newsletter will offer insights to keep you up to date on key developments. 

We hope you find it useful and informative.
