Since YGAM’s inception we have always followed a carefully defined strategic plan that is scoped by (i) the emerging data, research, and National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms and (ii) from the insights, our own learning and the external evaluations & accreditations YGAM have commissioned in order to understand our organisational effectiveness and impact.
YGAM as an independent charity, registered with and regulated by the Charity Commission; having the ability to demonstrate our public benefit and impact is not only critical to us, but an essential requirement of a formally registered charity. All our board of trustees, including our Chair give their time voluntary and are wholly independent of the gambling industry. When YGAM was founded we established an initial enabling plan, then in 2016 we produced our first strategic plan for the period 2016 – 2018. The charity is now in to the second strategic plan covering the period 2019 – 2021; a timescale aligned to the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms.
This website page will be updated every four months to show progress against the key measures within our strategic plan and our funders in a transparent way. The YGAM Strategic Plan is a ‘live’ document and any updates to the actions within each goal is updated in the table below.
