The Forum will exist alongside other regulatory bodies and industry gambling initiatives, such as the Lived Experience Advisory Panel, the Advisory Board for Safer Gambling, and the Digital Advisory Panel. It is hoped that partnerships with industry regulators will help members offer their perspectives on proposed changes to gambling regulations.

Additionally, the platform will allow members to share information in key gambling sectors, includ-ing account management, consultations, and the Commission's data program.

We’ve always listened to the views of the industry when deciding how best to make pro-gress, but this new forum will give us another way to work with representatives from the industry we regulate.

The UKGC plans to open applications for candidates to become members of the Forum. The regu-lator is looking for members who have a good knowledge of the challenges and opportunities that face stakeholders in the gambling industry.
