GambleAware has named Sian Griffiths, former president of the UK Faculty of Public Health, as its new chair of trustees. Griffiths will assume the role on July 18, following her tenure as GambleAware’s deputy chair and chair of its performance and delivery committee.

Previously, she chaired Public Health England’s global health committee and served as an associate non-executive member of its advisory board until its disbandment in September 2021. Griffiths is also a non-executive director for Public Health Wales.

In 2003, Griffiths led the Hong Kong government's SARS Inquiry, which resulted in her becoming the founding director of the Jockey Club School of Public Health and Primary Care at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

“I am delighted to accept this appointment and to continue working with GambleAware to ensure gambling harms are viewed as a serious public health issue,” Griffiths said.

“GambleAware’s independence from the industry remains paramount and is demonstrated across all areas of the charity’s work. I look forward to continuing these efforts with my public health colleagues and experts within the GambleAware board as we transition to a new statutory funding model.”
