We collaborate with local health and community organisations to reach vulnerable communities that are at greater risk from problem gambling. Our partners have the connections and expertise to raise awareness in their own communities of the early warning signs of problem gambling and the potential harms and risks.
These partnerships bring residents together with government and community organisations to address local needs. These programs also aim to enhance local leadership and networks and build community resilience. By building resilience, we hope to address some of the causes of problem gambling, including social exclusion, depression and boredom.
Our local partnerships are being carried out with the Department of Human Services and the Department of Planning and Community Development, which both have expertise in building resilience in communities.
We also work with the Department of Human Services Primary Care Partnerships program to take advantage of existing networks in the health sector.
