Get help and support
Every year we assist thousands of Victorians to successfully take control of their gambling. We support people with gambling problems, family and friends close to them, and those just wanting to cut back or regain control. All Gambler's Help services are 100% free.
We help people to change how they think about gambling. Because once you understand how gambling affects you, you are better able to take control.
