Gambling support

If gambling has become a problem, you are not alone.

Gambling can quickly get out of control. If gambling is affecting you or your family, our
professional counsellors are here to support you. We can help you to set and achieve your goals.

Stop. Control. Reduce. Your goals, your choice. 

If you’d like a ‘self-exclusion order’ that bars you from gambling areas in Tasmania, we can arrange that. We can provide support and encouragement, too. If you are a community member in an area that has a gambling issue, we can arrange an educational workshop.

Service Area

Anglicare offers this service in the South and the North West of Tasmania. Relationships Australia Tasmania facilitates this service in the North.


Gambler’s Help is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. Visit for more information. This service is also supported by the Crown through the Department of Communities Tasmania.

Gambling doesn’t discriminate. It’s an issue that affects people across all age groups, gender and social demographics.

Gambler’s Help offers free counselling and support for individuals, and education workshops for local communities.

“As with other addictions, gambling to the extent it causes harm, is often symptomatic of other issues in a person’s life,” explains the manager of Anglicare’s gambling support service. “Which means that there’s no quick fix. And it’s not a matter of individual choice”.
