Social Responsibility In Gambling
Treetops Hospice operates a Society lottery for the general public for the sole purpose of raising funds for Treetops Hospice.
The Society is committed to ensuring the lottery is operated in a secure, fair and socially responsible way and to endorse responsible gambling amongst its members. The Gambling Commission regulates gambling in the public interest. The regulatory framework introduced by the Gambling Act 2005 is based on three licensing objectives:
- Preventing gambling from being a source of crime and disorder, being associated with crime and disorder, or being used to support crime.
- Ensuring that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way.
- Protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling.
Our Social Responsibility in Gambling Policy sets out Treetops Lottery’s policies to ensuring we approach any gambling activities in a socially responsible way.
