Responsible Gambling Awareness week runs from the 24th to 30th of October and this year’s theme is Gambling. Go Easy.
This important week is about encouraging responsible gambling on four levels: individual, government, industry and community.
For individuals, this means that gambling is controlled, within your budget and time limits and doesn’t negatively impact your life or the lives of those around you.
For the community, responsible gambling means that organisations like gambling providers, governments and sporting associations share the responsibility of making the community aware of the risks of gambling. They must also create and promote environments that prevent or minimise problem gambling and respond to community gambling concerns.
If you, or someone you know, is suffering from financial stress as a result of gambling, it may be time to speak to a financial counsellor.
