Responsible Gambling Awareness Week (RGAW) is taking place this week, running from 23-29 October in NSW. Held during the break between the footy grand finals and Melbourne Cup, RGAW aims to get people to take a moment and think about their gambling.
During RGAW, young people are being invited to learn about the need to keep their limits in mind when having a bet through a series of social media ads and video content.
Gambling Help services will also be running community-based events such as barbecues, morning teas, meetings and forums to raise awareness of the need to gamble responsibly.
Responsible Gambling Awareness Week offers a chance to spread the word about responsible gambling behaviour and also let people know how they can get support if they feel their gambling is becoming a problem.
Gambling Help NSW is funded by the Responsible Gambling Fund, which supports initiatives that support responsible gambling and prevent and minimise the risk of problem gambling related harm in the community.
