The Foundation supports and funds a network of community organisations across Victoria to deliver Gambler’s Help services.
As well as providing treatment services, Gambler’s Help organisations deliver health promotion services to:
- create awareness of the risks associated with problem gambling
- promote responsible gambling
- promote local Gambler’s Help services
- prevent problem gambling by addressing the underlying causes.
There are 21 specialist community educators based at Gambler’s Help organisations throughout Victoria who provide local community education and prevention activities. These vary across regions and are tailored to local communities, but can include attending community events and providing talks to workplaces, community groups and schools.
To find out more about the community education services available near you, contact your local Gambler’s Help agency.
