Gambling Harm Awareness Week (GHAW) evolved from Gamblefree Day which was traditionally held on 1 September.
During this week, events and activities will take place around the country that aim is to raise awareness in our communities about the harm from gambling. Unfortunately, many Asian people are not aware of the potential harm of gambling. Although these events are fun, family events, they carry a serious message.
Gambling Harm Awareness Week encourages people to “take time out from gambling and put time into the family”. Evidence shows spending time with a loved one and doing activities (like going for a walk or sharing a meal) is a practical way to distract people from gambling and help to beat gambling harm.
