We work to increase knowledge and awareness about gambling and gambling harm within Canberra.
In our presentations, we show the facts about gambling harm and what support is available in the ACT.
The informative presentations are suitable and recommended for high school, college, tertiary education students, community service organisations, staff and P&C meetings.
Our community engagement officer and peer support worker will attend your event to bring information about gambling harm and the various services available, along with fun merchandise materials.
In our workshops, we provide information about the history of gambling, the difference between odds and house odds, the statistical likelihood of winning and its meaning. We also talk about what gambling harm is, how to recognise it in others and ourselves and where to find support.
Our interactive program is suitable and recommended for years 7 – 10.
We work with the gambling industry by providing information and resources about gambling harm, to help support their staff and patrons. This includes providing promotional material and attending staff meetings.

“Help from the ACT Gambling Support Service was incredibly helpful. It was nice to know there was no cap and I could come as long as I need to as I think that impacts. Seeing someone in the first place and being told you can only come three times doesn’t help. The freedom and flexibility to see someone as long as I needed was fantastic”.
“The ACT Gambling Support Service team helped with my addiction a great deal. I have not gambled for over a year already. I feel great about that. It has changed my life a lot. The counsellor was a great support and help to me. Thank you so much”.
