Harm from gambling can happen much earlier than people realise and affect the health, wellbeing and financial security of even those who gamble infrequently. By partnering with others, the Foundation is working to raise awareness of gambling harm and provide access to a range of effective treatment and support. It also provides policy advice across government. Prevention initiatives include state-wide advertising campaigns and community programs and work with venues to help create safer gambling environments. The Foundations role extends to providing the latest information to community groups, local government and the public about gambling and its regulation in Victoria. The Foundation is committed to a Victoria free from gambling related harm.
