Problem Gambling Support Services Committee
The Problem Gambling Support Services Committee was formed in 1995 under the auspices of the Gaming and Wagering Commission of Western Australia. The Problem Gambling Support Services Committee brings together representatives from the gambling industry and government to address the social and economic issues that result from problem gambling in Western Australia.
The Committee currently funds two help services for people affected by problem gambling, their partners and families:
- Gambling Help WA - A free face to face counselling service; and
- Problem Gambling Helpline - a toll free, 24 hour telephone counselling and referral service (charges apply to calls made from mobile telephones).
The PGSSC also contribute annually to Gambling Help Online at www.gamblinghelponline.org.au, Gambling Research Australia and Responsible Gambling Awareness Week.
