The 18th to 24th October 2021 is Gambling Harm Awareness Week, providing an opportunity to talk about the harms associated with gambling and the effects this can have on communities, families, friends, workplaces, and individuals.

Everyone has a role to play in preventing gambling harm.

Sports Central are proud to be a part of the Ballarat Community Health All-In Gambling Harm Prevention Project, along with many other organisations in the local community.

We are committed to the principles of preventing gambling harm for our staff, members and the Central Highlands sport and active recreation community.

Through our involvement in the project, we will:

  • Raise awareness of gambling harm
  • Reduce stigma and stereotypes
  • Encourage help seeking access to services
  • Change behaviours and norms and promote alternative recreation
