Responsible Gambling Awareness Week (RGAW) is an annual event that encourages gamblers to stay within their limits and highlights the support available to people who feel gambling may have become a problem for them or someone they know.
In 2018, Responsible Gambling Awareness Week will be held in Queensland from 30 July to 5 August.
This year, gamblers are being asked 'How does your gambling stack up?'. We encourage people who gamble to complete Gambling Help Queensland's online questionnaire to assess the risk level of their gambling.
The safety and well-being of gambling customers and/or their families and friends are placed at risk; and or
Negative impacts extend to the broader community.
Personal- stress, depression and anxiety, poor health, suicide
Work and Study- job loss, absenteeism, poor performance
Financial- financial hardships, debts, asset losses, bankruptcy
Legal- theft, fraud, scams
Interpersonal- domestic violence, relationship breakdown, family neglect
Community Services- pressure on charities and public purses.
Responsible gambling occurs in a regulated environment where the potential for harm associated with gambling is minimised and people make informed decisions about their participation in gambling.
Responsible gambling occurs as a result of the collective actions and shared ownership by individuals, communities, the gambling industry and the Government to achieve outcomes that are socially responsible and responsive to community concerns.
Whilst the majority of people gamble responsibly, a small percentage of people may experience difficulties associated with their gaming behaviours.
