Gambling Harm Awareness 2020

Take part in Gambling Harm Awareness 2020 from Monday 26 October until Sunday 29 November 2020, to raise awareness of the harms associated with gambling and the effects it can have on communities, families and individuals.

The theme for this year is ‘Gambling harm can happen anywhere’. We know that 2020 has been anything but normal. For some, the effects of COVID-19 have been welcomed but for others, it has been a challenge. During this uncertain period, some people have turned to gambling as a way to cope.

The DHS Office of Problem Gambling has worked closely with industry stakeholders to develop a variety of resources and events to raise awareness of the effects of gambling. Some of the ways that you can get involved include:

If you or someone you know requires assistance, call the free, confidential Gambling Helpline on 1800 858 858.
