Harm from gambling impacts not only people who gamble but also their loved ones, communities and workplaces. In addition, that harm extends beyond high-risk gamblers – Victorian studies have shown that low and moderate risk gambling accounts for 85% of gambling harm. North East Healthy Communities recognises that people who have overcome the effects of gambling harm have considerable expertise on the issue, which is of value to others. Many of these people want to share their story to lend hope and inspiration to others and bring the often hidden experience of harm from gambling into the open.
