Financial counsellors are trained professionals who can help you work your way out of financial difficulties and back into the black. Many of the RGF’s counselling services also provide free financial counselling for people who are impacted by problem gambling.
The Federal Government also funds many free financial counsellors who work closely with our services and understand gambling issues.
The RGF funds four specialist counselling services that cater to the needs of Aboriginal people. They are situated within our Gambling Help services in Newcastle, Wagga Wagga, Kempsey and Parramatta.
We also fund an Aboriginal-specific phone counselling service. The service is free to call. Call 1800 752 948
