Responsible Gambling Awareness Week 2017

Responsible Gambling Awareness Week (RGAW) in NSW is from 23-29 October 2017.

RGAW is a time to reflect on what healthy gambling behaviours are, and we encourage you to think about your own gambling practices during this week.

Whatever your limits are, RGAW is a great time to think about them.

Events in your community

During RGAW, Gambling Help services and community organisations host events across NSW to raise awareness of responsible gambling.

We would love for you to swing by one of our events and have a chat about responsible gambling. To find out if an RGAW event is happening in your local area, refer to the event listing below.
