Mainstream tender finalised
The Office of Responsible Gambling has recently completed the tender process to establish GambleAware Providers across NSW. Ten GambleAware Providers have been contracted for five years to deliver a range of therapeutic and non-therapeutic services from 1 July 2021 across 10 regions in NSW: Northern Sydney & Central Coast, South Eastern Sydney, South Western Sydney, Blue Mountains & Western Sydney, Central Sydney, Far & Western NSW, Hunter New England, Illawarra & Southern NSW, Mid & Northern NSW and Murrumbidgee.
GambleAware Providers will offer community engagement, support, counselling and treatment to people experiencing gambling harm and those negatively affected by other people’s gambling. Tender for a specialist Aboriginal and Multicultural state-wide service will be released shortly.
Extending our resource base
We recently finalised new translations of some of our existing resources: ‘Myths, superstitions and false beliefs around gaming machines’ and ‘Advice for parents and carers’.
In addition to earlier translations, these flyers are now available for downloading from our website in Punjabi, Sinhalese and Swahili.
