Responsible Gambling Fund

The Responsible Gambling Fund supports projects and services that aim to reduce and prevent the harms associated with problem gambling.

Funding is available for a range of activities including:

  • Counselling
  • Research and reviews
  • Awareness campaigns
  • Workforce and professional development.

The Fund comes from a levy on each NSW casino licence under the Casino Control Act 1992. An independent advisory committee makes recommendations to the Minister on the appropriate allocation of monies from the Responsible Gambling Fund.
