Gambling Harm Awareness Fact Sheets

Harm from gambling isn't just about losing money.  Gambling can affect self-esteem, relationship, physical and mental health, work performance and social life.  It can harm not only the person who gambles but also family, friends, workplaces and communities.  Council has a commitment to contributing to the reduction of harms from gambling as part of its current Council and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021(PDF, 12MB).

A series of Gambling Awareness Fact Sheets were first collated in 2015.

The 2018 fact sheets have been updated and reflect Council's current commitment to reducing gambling harms.  The information based in the fact sheet series has been sourced from data available from the Victorian Commission for Gambling & Liquor Regulation and the Responsible Gambling Foundation of Victoria.
