UK based Responsible Gambling Fund has hired web designer Electric Putty to design an information hub that will give problem gambling information for those in Britain.
The site, which is set to launch in February of next year is aimed to assist:
Researchers, including those new to the field, enabling them to search for new articles and publications as well as current policy documents relevant to their area of interest.
Treatment providers, including those not currently providing treatment to problem gamblers, will be able to use the hub to search for practice guidance, service evaluations, prevalence and problem gambling statistics.
Those referring people to treatment services in order to search for basic, easily accessible information on dealing with problem gambling in their specific area of interest, e.g. GP practices or debt advice agencies.
Education and harm prevention services to search for existing practice and evaluation, identified need and possible regulation.
Policy makers, including government, regulators and local authorities, to search for up-to-date statistics and overviews of particular topics.
Current and potential funders to search for up-to-date statistics, regulatory documents and overviews of particular topics.
