How to get involved

Local community events that focus on engagement with the community are a vital component of Responsible Gambling Awareness Week (RGAW).

In 2015 and 2016 more than 150 community events were held across Victoria by:

  • local councils
  • Gambler's Help Services
  • community service organisations
  • sporting clubs
  • regional race clubs,
  • RSL clubs and
  • gaming venues.

We encourage our partners to start planning local activities and events that will involve as many members of the community as possible.

The Foundation will provide funding opportunities to community organisations and local government engaged in the development and implementation of events and projects that have capacity to contribute to the aims and objectives of the week.

Funding applications will close at 5pm on Tuesday, 19 September 2017.
