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.
