Do you think you might have a problem with gambling? If so, you are not alone! This site can help you and your family find a solution. Designed for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) individuals and communities to tackle gambling problems and its effects. Our trained Community Ambassadors can help you access services and support communities to understand gambling issues better.
We understand that people with gambling problems have many positive qualities, strengths, dreams and goals in life. We can support you to challenge unhelpful feelings of shame and find the right help for you.
Take the test to better understand your gambling and the severity of the problem you may have. Understand your problem and gain more control.
Having a problem with gambling can lead to many difficulties including losing your job, dropping out of study, struggling to pay debts, becoming homeless or legal problems. There are many free, confidential services that can help. Remember, you are not alone.
If you or someone you care about is experiencing gambling problems there is help available. No matter how big the problem is, with the right support and help, it is possible to overcome it.
PEACE Multicultural services launched the first ever ‘Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Gambling Help Action Plan 2015’ following extensive consultation with over 20 different South Australian CALD communities. The Action Plan was funded by the Gamblers Rehabilitation Fund through the Office of Problem Gambling.
Outcomes from the Action Plan were new initiatives to get messages out to CALD communities about gambling harm. One of those initiatives was the Community Ambassadors Project.
We all need support and connection to live a healthy and meaningful life. Belonging to a community and being part of it, enables us to feel strong and reminds us that we are not alone. Many mainstream services are built around Anglo-Australian concepts of individualism, autonomy and personal responsibility.
