About us

The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation was created by the Victorian Parliament under the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation Act 2011 specifically to address the challenge of gambling harm in the Victorian community.

Our purpose is to prevent and reduce gambling harm for all Victorians. Our role is to fund research and other activities that add to the knowledge and understanding of gambling harm; to work in partnership with others to offer evidence-based prevention programs and support services to those affected by gambling harm; and to deliver communication campaigns that inform and influence gambling-related attitudes and behaviours.

Gambling harm affects individuals, families, communities and populations. Accordingly, we take a public health approach to harm, which comprises evidence-based awareness, prevention, early intervention, education, and treatment and support programs. Our strategic priorities are to:

  • Foster community understanding of gambling harm to lay the groundwork for the attitudinal changes required to prevent and reduce gambling harm.
  • Inform and deliver prevention and intervention activities to reduce the harm in populations, communities and settings most affected by access and exposure to gambling products.
  • Strengthen the funded services system to provide accessible, integrated, relevant and visible options for the delivery of effective treatment and support to those seeking help for gambling harm.

The Foundation's values guide our actions, behaviours and the way we engage with each other and our stakeholders. Our values are Collaboration, Curiosity, Integrity, Outcomes Focussed, and Respect. All employees are required to comply with the Foundation's values and the Victorian Public Service Code of Conduct.

We are a fair and equitable employer, providing a respectful, flexible and inclusive workplace for all. We are always looking to improve diversity on the Board in order to better reflect the Victorian community it serves.
