For venues

Venue support program

As outlined in the Responsible Gambling Codes of Conduct, gaming venues in Victoria have responsibilities to identify and respond to patrons showing signs of distress which may be related to problem gambling.

To support and assist venues in fulfilling these responsibilities, the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation funds the Gambler’s Help Venue Support Program, which includes 24 Venue Support Workers throughout Victoria.

This support helps gaming venues to:

  • identify and respond to patrons displaying signs of problem gambling
  • raise awareness among venue staff about, and encourage referrals to Gambler’s Help services, self-exclusion programs and other community support services
  • meet the requirements of their Responsible Gambling Codes of Conduct
  • create and maintain responsible gambling environments
