We want to see Australia without poker machines harming our communities and without sports gambling ads dominating our televisions. It's time to end Australia's gambling addiction!
WE'RE IN IT TOGETHER
Whether it's supporting a local community fighting a poker machine application, a state-wide campaign to change poker machines laws, or by demanding national policy reform to curb sports gambling - we're stronger together.
Below are our current campaigns. Please follow the links to help build an Australia without ongoing gambling harm.
HOLDING THE AFL TO ACCOUNT

VICTORIA STATE ELECTION 2022 -TIME TO DEMAND CHANGE!
We've been advocating on these issues for many years, but it's now time with the state election to ramp up the movement and make sure candidates and MPs know gambling harm is a crucial public health issue which needs immediate and meaningful reforms! Click here to learn more.
The documentary Ka-Ching! Pokie Nation is a powerful tool for engaging Australians on the issue of poker machine gambling, and how it damages our communities. Community groups, councils, churches and small clubs are screening the film to bring their group together around an important issue.

Kingston - Chelsea Heights Hotel and Woolworth Supreme Court Appeal
We were thrilled by the passionate community turn out to draw attention to a loophole in current planning laws.
We attended a flash rally in Chelsea, hosted by the Alliance for Gambling Reform, to show community opposition to the proposal to build a supermarket close to a gambling venue. We believe our community shouldn't be exposed to the risk of gambling harm just by buying groceries and we saw many of you agreed. Click here to learn more and take action.
