We are a registered health promotion charity (not-for-profit organisation) run by volunteers and professionals working in the field of problem gambling and social welfare. Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in the impacts of gambling in the community.
Why should you join?
Membership of the Gambling Impact Society (NSW) gives you the opportunity to play a role in raising awareness about the impacts of gambling harm in the community. Membership fees are used to develop our services and educational resources, including publication of the e-newsletter. You may also choose to get directly involved and use your time or skills to assist in the education, advocacy and support work of the Gambling Impact Society (NSW).
