Gamcare gears up for new UK Gambling Act requirements

The British problem gambling organisation GameCare is helping online gambling operators to gear up for the September introduction of the UK Gambling Act by providing training services for operator staff involved with problem gambling activities.

GamCare's Andrew Poole is the managing director of GamCare Trade Services (GTS) which has been formed to offer specialised training in preparation for the social responsibility requirements of the Act.

The training software consultancy Absolutely Training has been inspanned to partner GTS on the project following its success on Betfair initiatives, and that company will be among the leaders in signing up for the new services.

Absolutely and GTS have already produced courses that include problem gambling and social responsibility, and the skill required in working with problem gambling.

Betfair's social responsibility manager Kate Stewart says: GamCare training has always been an important part of Betfairs social responsibility programme. This new e-learning solution will enable us to ensure that all staff, across all locations, onshore and offshore, can benefit from GamCares high standards of training.
