Safer Online Gambling Group Receives Funding for Digital Tool

by Glenn Baird - December 18, 2020

The Safer Online Gambling Group (SOGG) has announced today that it was successful in its application for £40,000 worth of funding to help develop supports.

SOGG intends on using the tool to help prevent problem gambling and believe that it will be ready for releases within the next 3 months.

The money will be given to SOGG through the Inclusive Recovery Fund, which can be found at UnLtd, in partnership with Comic Relief and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

Sogg has also been working with Entain, the owner of the Ladbrokes Coral Group, in a campaign known as ‘Changing for the Bettor’.

Director Adam Bradford said: “The funding is fantastic news. It means we can more effectively evaluate and scale up our work to help treat problem gambling behaviour more quickly through a range of digital tools.

“I know first-hand just how devastating the effects out of control online gambling can be on the wider family. This funding will help us make a huge difference where individuals are showing signs of problematic gambling.”

UnLtd finds and funds social entrepreneurs in the UK, providing them with support packages and assistive funding.

Mark Norbury, Chief Executive of UnLtd, commented on the decision to grant the funding: “We were astonished at the quality and number of applications for this fund, demonstrating a clear and continuing funding gap for high-potential social entrepreneurs across a breadth of causes, communities, venture-types and sectors.

“Those funded today will be leading lights as we enter the next act of the coronavirus crisis – allowing us a glimpse of hope and optimism as the year draws to a close and we look further ahead to what comes next.”

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland sits to the north-west of mainland Europe. The United Kingdom shares a border with The Republic of Ireland and has coasts on the Atlantic Ocean, Celtic Sea, North Sea, Irish Sea and English Channel. The population of the UK is approaching the 67.6 million mark leading to a fairly densely populated land mass. The gambling sector in the United Kingdom is entirely regulated and licensed by the UKGC – the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. Should players resident In the UK wish to gamble with foreign based operators there is no history of this being treated as a criminal offence, but high levels of protection exist for UK residents playing with UK licensed operators.
