The Gambling Commission has released new guidelines to help mitigate the risk of unaffordable lending!
India’s leading non-profit organization for the digital sector, GamCare released its list of industry recommendations to combat unaffordable lending. The company conducted an insight workshop in order to produce this comprehensive report on how companies can better serve their clients who are struggling financially due do high interest rates charged by traditional lenders or lack thereof altogether.
The charity has called on businesses to implement programs that will help them deal with gambling-related harm. The organization says this can be done by improving staff awareness and giving workers more training, so they are better equipped for identifying people who may have problems as well providing those individuals access free tools or services aimed at protecting consumers experiencing difficulty in playing games responsibly.

This will define meaningful indicators and interventions in working with charities that have lived experience of harmful gambling; especially those who are most vulnerable such as young people or members from black communities.
The input was about improving Second Avenue’s current services while also identifying new opportunities for positive change through the “gambling lens.” The output only briefly summarized these ideas but instead focused on how this would help marginalized groups within society like youth experiencing poverty (or blacks).
