Awareness and prevention
Information and resources
Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation
The foundation helps people affected by problem gambling, as well as their families and friends. We are also responsible for fostering a greater understanding and awareness of the concept of responsible gambling in the wider community.
Providing high-quality support services to Victorians affected by gambling is one of the foundation's top priorities. We fund a network of organisations across Victoria to deliver integrated problem gambling treatment and support services to people with gambling problems, their families and communities at risk. Our range of services include telephone, face-to-face, online and financial counselling, advice and information.
The foundation aims to continually improve clinical services received by gamblers seeking treatment in Victoria. Our Professional Development Centre has been created to support the training and development needs of Gambler's Help clinicians, so that they can provide the best service possible to their clients.
The foundation's innovative research program provides a strong evidence base to help us better understand problem gambling. This knowledge is used to develop effective prevention and intervention strategies.
We provide information about gambling and its regulation and licence approval processes to the Victorian community through the Gambling Information Resource Office (GIRO).
