Relationships Australia (SA) has been providing gambling help services for over 17 years.
Recently, Relationships Australia (SA) won the tender to expand service delivery in Adelaide metropolitan areas including the eastern, western, northern and southern suburbs, as well as regional areas including Adelaide Hills, Barossa, Murray & Mallee, Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island. This is a great encouragement and testament to our commitment to quality service delivery.
Problem gambling is one of the most serious root causes of many socio-economic and family problems including mental health problems and relationship issues. Recent research has also shown a demonstrable link between problem gambling, crime and drug use.
According to the latest census, the South Australian expenditure on gambling has been on the increase over recent years and it is therefore necessary to act regularly to help the people who are the most affected and vulnerable.
We are committed to help the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in South Australia and will do this through our Gambling Help Services.
