GRASP - Gambling Reform and Society Perception Group
Gambling Reform & Society Perception (GRASP) was established in November 2010 and is a non-profit organization. GRASP was founded, and is run by former Compulsive Gamblers who have a burning desire to prevent other people from suffering from this secret addiction. They help and advise problem gamblers but their primary focus is on prevention rather than cure and raising awareness of problem gambling. Gambling Reform & Society Protection (GRASP) are not against gambling or against any operator working in a free enterprise. GRASP are against problem gambling and the social consequences of problem gambling.
High Streets First
High Streets First is campaigning for a change in the law to give local communities a say over the number of betting shops in their area. High Streets First do not believe that all gambling is wrong – in fact done responsibly it can be great – but they do believe that in some places people have good reason to be unhappy with the number of betting shops on their high streets.
