Support for Aboriginal people

Think you have a problem with gambling? Or does someone close to you have a problem?

We provide support for people affected by gambling in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. 

We help people with gambling problems as well as those close to them who are affected by their gambling.

This includes counselling to help you deal with a gambling problem, or financial counselling to help you get your finances back on track. You can speak to someone on the phone or see someone face to face.

For immediate, 24/7 support and information call Gambler's Help 1800 858 858 or visit Gambling Help Online.
