At EACH, we know that for some people gambling can change from fun to stressful.
If you or someone you care about is experiencing problems with gambling, help is available. We understand that gambling affects people from all walks of life and in different ways.
Our Gambler’s Help Eastern service offers support, advice and information to people affected by gambling (both gamblers and non-gamblers) and to the broader community. We provide a range of professional services across the Eastern Metropolitan Region of Melbourne.
Our service provides:
- free and confidential support;
- help with controlling or stopping your gambling habits;
- support for family members, friends and carers;
- help to sort out your finances and give you tips and tools to manage better;
- one-on-one appointments, or with others.
Information and education about issues relating to at-risk and out-of-control gambling and gaming facilities are also provided by our community development team. Support and training to gambling venue staff is provided through the Venue Support Program.
