Strategic direction

Foundation priorities

The Foundation’s strategic priorities guide our work and reflect the issues we are addressing within the gambling environment, underpinned by our commitment to deliver outcomes that will have health and wellbeing benefits for all Victorians.

Our priorities in 2021–2024 are to:

  1. foster community understanding of gambling harm to lay the groundwork for the attitudinal changes required to prevent and reduce gambling harm
  2. inform and deliver prevention and intervention activities to reduce the harm in populations, communities and settings most affected by access and exposure to gambling products
  3. strengthen the funded services system to provide accessible, integrated, relevant and visible options for the delivery of effective treatment and support to people seeking help for gambling harm.

Outcomes framework

The Foundation’s purpose is to prevent and reduce gambling harm for all Victorians.

Our outcomes framework identifies the seven outcomes that will demonstrate progress towards achieving our purpose. The causes of gambling harm are complex, as are the solutions, which is why we will continue to work with others to address gambling harm, including our partners across policy, regulation and the community.

Working with First Nations Communities

We support First Nations communities in developing local approaches to prevent and reduce harm from gambling that are culturally safe and meet the aspirations and needs of each community.

Our commitment to outer metropolitan, regional and rural communities

It is essential all Victorians who experience harm from gambling have ready access to support if they need it.

Our 2018–2021 commitment to working with non-metro communities outlines our approach to raising awareness of gambling harm, improving understanding of the signs that someone may be at risk, and providing targeted assistance in outer metropolitan, regional and rural communities.

Working with others who share our interests

Stakeholder engagement is a cornerstone of our work. Our stakeholder engagement framework 2018–2021 recognises the value we place on collaboration and sets out how we will work with others who share our interests.

We welcome the expertise and ideas of our stakeholders, and embrace the opportunity to share insights, test new concepts and gain greater understanding of gambling harm from a range of perspectives. We all have a role to play in working towards a Victoria free from gambling harm.

We thank those stakeholders whose input helped shape the framework.
