After a long lapse since the last consultation the Department for Communities are now seeking views on the regulation of gambling in Northern Ireland.

The closing date for the consultation is 21st February 2020.

This will be of particular interest for charities and other not for profit bodies that run society lotteries or prize draws and will be of even more interest to those charities that operate throughout the United Kingdom and who have found that at times the laws in Northern Ireland are at odds with those in the rest of the United Kingdom.

We would encourage all charities who use lotteries or prize draws to respond to this consultation.

Further information on the consultation and how to respond can be found here.
