Community Engagement Program

Community engagement encompasses the delivery of targeted activities aimed at addressing the prevention of gambling harm, including the take-up of Gambler’s Help services, at the local level.

Operating within the public health framework, the goals of the Community Engagement Program are to:

  • improve community knowledge of the potential harms and risks associated with gambling
  • promote help-seeking and increase awareness of Gambler’s Help services
  • build strategic local partnerships to foster cross-sector collaborations across the public health continuum

Community engagement activities are implemented by Gambler’s Help services and are tailored to local communities. Activities can include attending local events, delivering education sessions to workplaces and community groups, and providing alternative recreation activities to the community. Further resources – including PowerPoint slide decks, videos and toolkits – to support planning and delivery of activities can be found on the Resources page.

Planning, reporting and evaluation tools to support community engagement can be found here.
