What’s the Problem?
The social and financial costs of gambling continue to severely impact ACT individuals, families and wider community. People experiencing domestic and family violence, older people, people with disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples are at a higher risk of experiencing gambling harm.
