Awareness and prevention
The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation’s Prevention Partnership Program aims to help prevent and reduce gambling-related harm within local communities across Victoria.
The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation will fund 14 partnership projects from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2019, receiving a combined total of $3.87 million, to help to prevent and reduce gambling harm in communities across Victoria.
The 14 projects will work with diverse groups in urban and regional Victoria, and will build social connection and resilience to prevent and reduce gambling harm in local communities and among at-risk groups.
Projects also aim to break down the stigma around gambling harm and encourage people affected by gambling to seek advice and support.
The Prevention Partnership Program has been operating since 2014 and has funded a wide range of community-based, not for profit, local government and public health organisations to test new ideas and build evidence for effective practice in the prevention of gambling harm.
Find out more about each of the 14 projects funded under the Prevention Partnership Program 2017–19.
The Foundation would like to acknowledge the extensive work that has been completed by the prevention projects funded through the 2015–2017 Local Prevention Grants Program.
