Gambling Harm Awareness Week: 18 - 24 October 2021

Today marks the beginning of Gambling Harm Awareness Week. The theme for 2021 is TALK.SHARE.SUPPORT.

Gambling Harm Awareness Week is an opportunity to engage with your local community about why gambling harm matters. The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation has provided a range of resources to support this that are available here.

The 2021 campaign focus is on neuroscientific research to explain how the brain changes and responds to gambling, and how an addiction can develop.

We encourage councils to share the digital content throughout the week to encourage your communities to TALK.SHARE.SUPPORT.
