If you or someone you know is having gambling issues, Gambler's Help is available
Supporting Victorians affected by gambling
The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation is here to support people affected by gambling harm, including family and friends. We take a public health approach to our work, which means we focus on prevention, early intervention and support for those who are particularly vulnerable to gambling harm as well as those living in regional and rural communities.
We fund and work closely with organisations across Victoria to provide free and confidential Gambler’s Help services to people experiencing harm from their own or someone else’s gambling.

Love the Game, Not the Odds
Gambling advertising is changing the way we see sport. The amount of advertising we are being exposed to on a daily basis makes it seem like gambling is a normal part of sport. Our Love the Game Program aims to counter the normalisation of gambling in sport.
