Independent responsible gambling charity, GambleAware, is in the process of adding two new members to its Lived Experience Council, or LEC.
The Lived Experience Council was launched in December of 2022 and is made up of 12 members that have been impacted by gambling harm in order to draw from their experiences to improve regulation and support around the issue of gambling harm.
GambleAware, therefore, has two seats available on this board, and is encouraging applications from young adults between 18 and 25, Welsh residents, members of minority groups, individuals with a disability and individuals from other socially excluded groups.
“With the launch of two seats on the Lived Experience Council, I can’t express enough how fantastic it is to be involved in the strategic development of GambleAware, which brings together a range of voices from those with lived experience and those affected by another person’s gambling,” LEC chair Ben Howard said.
“We have made great strides since forming and are excited to engage and welcome two new members to assist us in this vital work going forward and we hope to see representation of all communities on the Council.
“GambleAware are committed to the voices, development and expertise lived experience brings to achieving its mission to prevent and tackle gambling harms.”
