Before you get started

Before you start using the lessons, take a look at our facilitator pack, it includes:

  • information about how gambling affects young people.
  • what to consider when using the resources.
  • a list of additional resources.

Resources for students already experiencing gambling harm

The targeted resources framework has been developed to help teachers address the gambling harm students may already be experiencing. It includes:

  • an introductory workshop for beginning the discussion about gambling with students in a safe and open environment.
  • targeted interventions that may be required to provide more support

Teaching our youth about gambling harm is important

Research shows that exposure to gambling and participation in gambling among young people is increasing. School-based interventions can help address this. Our classroom-ready resources are designed to help teachers deliver engaging lessons that encourage student participation while educating them about gambling and its risks.

If your student needs someone to talk to confidentially about 
gambling-related issues – for themselves, a friend or a family
member, there is a range of professional support options for
young people. 

GambleAware acknowledges Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of the land and we pay respects to Elders past, present and emerging. GambleAware is an inclusive support service.
