Gambling Harm Awareness Week (GHAW) is an annual event that aims to increase awareness of gambling harms, safer gambling practices and the help available to people affected by gambling problems and is a great time to do a double check on your venue as to whether your materials are up to date.
As you know, gambling providers like clubs, pubs and other hospitality venues, have a responsibility under the Queensland responsible gambling code of practice and relevant legislation to provide their customers and members with information on how to get help for any problems with gambling they may have.
The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) works closely with Queensland’s gambling industry and the Gambling Help services to develop campaigns that focus on:
- early intervention and prevention
- consumer protection
- help services for people experiencing problems with gambling.
So, it’s important to know that there are plenty of great resources out there for your venue that are free, simply complete this order form to request hard copies of available resources for gambling harm minimisation and secondary supply of alcohol for your venue. You can also find Responsible Gambling Signage and resources through the Office of Liquor and Gaming.
If your team need Customer Liaison Officer (CLO) or RSG /RSG refresher training, our training partner CTA Training Specialists are always available for online, in person or group training at the venue.
