Gambling Harm Awareness Week 2021

Event type

This year Gambling Harm Awareness Week (GHAW) is 30 August to 5 September 2021. We encourage you to take the opportunity this year to celebrate the new brand: Safer Gambling Aotearoa, Me Kōrero Tātou | Tatou Talanoa.

The focus for GHAW this year is to celebrate the power of kōrero. There are many ways to kōrero, and when we kōrero with manaaki and alofa, we support each other to speak freely about our gambling. Talking about our gambling helps keep us safe.

A key message is, if you’re not quite ready to speak to a friend or whānau member, reach out to a confidential support service, they are here to offer you guidance and support, with manaaki and alofa.

All service providers will receive a toolkit of resources to support your GHAW mahi.
