Culturally Responsive Framework to Address Gambling Related Harm

Culturally Responsive Framework to Address Gambling Related Harm

Western Sydney Community Forum (WSCF) is conducting action research to learn more about the contributors and consequences of gambling related harm. The research project will capture insights from existing literature as well as case studies and successful practice models.

A set of best practice principles will be developed to guide organisations and practitioners in working to address gambling related harm within culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The project is funded by the Office of Responsible Gambling.

WSCF is seeking your support to gather case studies relating to people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities impacted by gambling related harm. Gambling harm impacts individuals, families, communities and entire populations.

WSCF is interested in case studies relating to any, and all, of these groups.

Gambling harm – any initial or ongoing negative consequence resulting from gambling that leads to a decline of the health or wellbeing of an individual, family unit, community or population. (Source: adapted from Langham et al. BMC Public Health, 2016)

There are several ways to contribute to the case study collection:

  1. Complete the template on behalf of the person impacted by gambling related harm. Download template
  2. Organise for a team member of WSCF to call you and scribe the case study information at a time that is convenient for you.
  3. Organise for a WSCF member to attend your service to sit with direct service staff to scribe multiple case studies. Please note, WSCF can only do this if you have a number of case studies to contribute (4 or more).

Please return the completed case study template by 26 February 2020. Be in contact at your earliest convenience to arrange for a staff member to call you or attend your service.
