Our Services


The Multicultural Problem Gambling Service for NSW (MPGS) provides information programs for community groups in a range of languages using bilingual workers.

The sessions cover topics such as: 

  • how to recognise the signs and symptoms of problem gambling
  • the consequences of problem gambling
  • information about our services.

MPGS also works closely with mainstream gambling services to provide training on cross cultural issues that are relevant to working with culturally and linguistically diverse problem gambling clients and their families.

Multi-venue Self Exclusion (MVSE)


MVSE (or self-banning) is a voluntary process initiated by a person who has a gambling concern, to exclude themselves from specific areas of gambling venues, entire venues, or online providers. This can include hotels, clubs and the Star Casino. All gambling venues in NSW must offer a self-exclusion scheme. Working with Clubs NSW, MPGS can assist in making self-exclusion applications from clubs and hotels in NSW. Call us on 1800 856 800 for further assistance regarding self exclusion.

Become a Consumer Voice for the Gambling Impact Society


The Gambling Impact Society NSW (GIS) is currently looking for peer educators to be trained to join its Consumer Voices Project.

Gambling Impact Society Logo in colourThe Consumer Voices project is a Health Promotion Community Education program which aims to increase community awareness and education about problem gambling and its impacts.

The project would like to hear from anyone who has had experiences with gambling problems. This includes people who have experienced gambling problems themselves and/or family members who have been affected. The project is looking for people who are working on their own recovery and once trained to ‘tell a personal story’ safely and professionally, would be willing to share their experiences.

If you are interested in participating in this project, or if you would like to find out more, please contact Kate Roberts, GIS Executive Officer and project coordinator at or download a leaflet about the project here (PDF 61KB)
