The harm minimisation impact of third party exclusion schemes and possible future directions for NSW

 

About the study

This report, by Schottler Consulting, investigated the implementation of a third-party exclusion scheme in response to recommendations from the NSW Legislative Council’s Select Committee on the Impact of Gambling in 2014.

Methodology

Methods encompassed a literature review, review of Australian and international third-party scheme regulations, stakeholder and family member consultations, and a survey examining possible issues on the design of a third-party scheme.

Key findings

Findings of the research highlight that while there is support from families for the idea of third-party exclusion, this alone is unlikely to play a significant role in minimising gambling harm to third parties. There is very limited to no use of third-party exclusion schemes in Australia, and data and reports about exclusion via these schemes suggest that the rate of exclusion breaching is likely to be high.
