Betknowmore UK work tirelessly to raise awareness, deliver more support services and through education, create more understanding about gambling related harm.
Betknowmore UK was founded in 2013 by Frankie Graham after his successful recovery in 2006 from a 20-year gambling addiction. Frankie founded this unique organisation to empower individuals to live the life they want to live, free from the harm that gambling causes. Gambling harm is a huge issue as it destroys people, their lives, the lives of their families and has huge health and wellbeing implications.
Gambling can become a powerful and extremely disruptive influence on a person’s life and those around them. Betknowmore UK has developed and established a gambling support hub which works with a range of stakeholders and community partners, to provide rapid outreach services to gamblers and their families to deliver therapeutic services so people can get the help they need and move into recovery.
Betknowmore UK generates income through service provision, principally training organisations in gambling awareness, providing consultancy services and donations to reduce the harm of gambling. There is a huge opportunity to deliver training to the gambling industry as the Gambling Commission clamps down on poor practice.
We have ambitious plans to grow our organisation, scale up and support more people to be free from gambling dependency through continuing to innovate, evolve and deliver new services, develop training toolkits for current & new sectors, and create more resources and additional gambling support hubs.
In response to a growing demand for our work and armed with a determined plan to help more people in more ways, we want to build on the momentum achieved so far and realise our ambitious. To achieve this we seek a number of new Board Members including a Treasurer.
The Treasurer is likely to be a senior finance professional in a not-for-profit organisation bringing governance experience. Experience of NHS and local government commissioning/contracting is desirable.
We are currently going through a board review process with the aim of creating a larger, highly committed and more diverse board who have experience of leading organisations through growth and development.
Through joining the Board of Betknowmore UK, you can build an organisation that supports people through recovery and educates people about gambling harm. The Board meets in Central London 4 times a year and there are 2 strategy development meetings. We would expect Board Members to commit to at least a day a month.
