Gambling Harm Awareness Week 2023

Gambling Harm Awareness Week 2022 is on now (from 24 July) until 30 July. This annual initiative is designed to raise awareness about the risks of gambling and promote safer gambling throughout our communities.

This year’s theme, “Safer gambling, we all have a role to play”, emphasises the importance of government, industry, and the community working together to prioritise the wellbeing of people in our communities and support those at risk of gambling harm.

Gambling Harm Awareness Week is a reminder to look out for warning signs and to regularly interact with people in the community. By interacting early and frequently, you can more easily identify who may be at increased risk of harm and create opportunities to start a conversation about gambling.

If gambling is an issue for the people your organisation works with, consider reaching out to your local Gambling Help service and create a partnership to support people who may be struggling with their gambling. You can also get involved in any Gambling Harm Awareness Week activities your local service may be running.

If you are hosting an event or activity, or even just promoting Gambling Harm Awareness Week, some downloadable resources are available. Find out more about the week.
