Foundation research program
The main aim of our research program is to build our understanding of gambling harm. Each year the Foundation identifies new areas of gambling to research and in addition to awarding research grants, we commission major research projects so that we can learn more about how gambling affects our community.
The growing body of evidence from this research supports the Foundation's work including Gambler's Help services and prevention programs, social marketing campaigns and policy advice to governments.
Our research agenda for 2015–2018 falls broadly within the themes of the changing gambling environment, preventing gambling harm, monitoring gambling in the Victorian community, and treatment and recovery.
