GambleAware Week

GambleAware Week

This year, Gamble Aware Week will take place 19 – 25 October 2020.

GambleAware week is an annual initiative to increase awareness of gambling and gambling related harm in the NSW community.

It is an opportunity to increase the community’s understanding of risky gambling behaviour, encourage gamblers and their loved ones to recognise when gambling may place them at risk of harm and provide information on practical ways to keep their gambling under control.

BCWS works to raise awareness of the harm gambling can cause and will be actively promoting GambleAware Week. Stay tuned for more information from the Office of Responsible Gambling.
