23 - 29 MAY 2016  NSW RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING AWARENESS WEEK  supported by the Australian Wagering Council

The focus of this year’s event is ‘family and friends’ and aims to assist the family and friends of problem gamblers to start a conversation with their loved one regarding their gambling problem.

Starting a conversation about problem gambling can be an awkward thing to do, so, this week, start a 'Talkward' with your friends and family instead and make the conversation around problem gambling a little less awkward. 

A new booklet provides practical advice for people on how to manage themselves and their loved ones if problem gambling has become an issue and can be downloaded here.
