The Gambler’s Help Venue Support Program was launched in September 2010 to support Victorian gaming venues in building and maintaining responsible gambling environments.
Twenty-four Venue Support staff are currently employed by Gambler’s Help agencies throughout Victoria to provide training and support to these venues, and to help them develop responsible gambling policies.
This support helps gaming venues to:
- identify and respond to patrons displaying signs of problem gambling
- raise awareness among venue staff about, and encourage referrals to Gambler’s Help services, self-exclusion programs and other community support services
- meet the requirements of their Responsible Gambling Codes of Conduct
- create and maintain responsible gambling environments.
