GambleAware, a reputable charity dedicated to various gambling addiction and gambling issues, announced its intention to donate 4 million pounds (5.52 million US dollars) to a new large-scale project in the UK. It should be the first unified Center for Academic Research on Harm from the Gambling Industry.
This initiative is part of the organization’s goals and commitment to creating diversity in scientific opportunities related to the negative impact of gambling on citizens.
The investment is being made as part of an eight-month grant process aimed at introducing new disciplines into gambling-related research. In addition, in parallel with this, the company is collecting evidence of its involvement in the fight against gambling addiction from young people in order to increase the international prestige of the UK.
The goals of the Academic Research Hub are to significantly expand the study of gambling not only in the UK but around the world. GambleAware’s vision of creating a safer society, protected from the influence of irresponsible gambling, will be realized as part of the charitable organization’s strategic research goals. Alternative funding will allow the project to continue to be implemented, ensuring its longevity and development after the initial award of a £4 million grant.
Currently, in Foggy Albion, most of the gambling industry research is conducted by a narrow number of experts. However, given the opening of the new Center and its main prerogative, a wide range of disciplines and academics will soon be developed, united by extensive research on the dangers of gambling.
