In-language counselling

The foundation works with and funds several organisations, embedded in the Vietnamese, Chinese and Arabic-speaking communities, to provide in-language services within their community.

A range of counselling support, community education and financial counselling services are provided in Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese and Arabic, as well as English.

A telephone-only service, Chinese Peer Connection, provides Chinese speakers with the option to talk anonymously to other Chinese speakers who have experienced and worked through harm from gambling.

Providing support to people from all backgrounds and cultures is important to us. If you speak a language not listed here, translators are available for free upon request when you contact Gambler's Help.
