Gambling Harm Awareness Week

+ Add to my Calendar

Harmful gambling can affect all aspects of a person's life - including their workplace.

People who have harmful gambling behaviours may be stressed and distracted, making them unable to work to their full potential.

It’s likely that 186,000 Kiwis are experiencing a level of gambling-related harm, but even so it’s often hidden from view.

This Gambling Harm Awareness Week has a list of free family-friendly events taking place around the country during Gambling Harm Awareness Week (3-9 September 2018).

During that week, people are encouraged to “take time out from gambling and put time into whānau”. Taking time out for activities with loved ones, for example by going fishing or sharing kai, is a practical way to beat gambling harm.

Gambling can start out as fun, but there is a point for everyone where it can become ‘unfun’.

There are a number of ways you could proactively help your staff:

In addition, you can refer people to FREE face-to-face counselling and support services in your local community.
