Funding to Support Long-Term Recovery from Gambling-Related Harms

Health & Social Welfare

05 July 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

A new grants programme to help those affected by gambling to rebuild and recover in Great Britain.

The charity GambleAware has launched a new £2 million Aftercare Funding Programme which focuses on sustained, rather than immediate, recovery from gambling harms.

There are two levels of funding available:

  • Level 1 offers grants of up to £150,000 for smaller projects or organisations or those looking to test a new approach. Projects should be 18 to 36 months in duration.
  • Level 2 offers grants of up to £350,000 for larger, well-established organisations to grow and develop their work further. Projects should be 24 to 36 months in duration.

Constituted not-for-profit organisations with a board of Trustees or Directors (ideally three unrelated people) in Great Britain may apply.

Projects should aim to meet some of the following core recovery outcomes:

  • Improved mental health and wellbeing.
  • Increased positive personal networks of support (including communities of understanding).
  • Improved self-image (including, but not limited to, reducing stigma).
  • Increased practical skills, including, but not limited to, financial and employability skills.
  • Increased confidence and self-believe in ability to accomplish goals (self-efficacy).
  • Increased knowledge about relevant supports available for those who have experienced gambling harms (directly or as affected by others) and among their support networks.

There will be a Q&A webinar on 12 July 2022, 11am to 12 noon.

The deadline to apply is 12 noon on 15 August 2022.
