Mission Australia offers services for people who are experiencing difficulties with managing their finances appropriately, including people affected by problem gambling.
While most Australians who gamble do so responsibly and within their means, thousands develop habits that cause harm to themselves, their families and even their communities.
Problem gamblers may find they have no money to buy food or pay their bills. They often experience health problems, such as stress, depression, anxiety and loss of sleep, and may be at risk of losing their family, friends, house or job.
We equip people with tools such as budgeting and debt reduction techniques to make informed decisions to resolve their financial difficulties and better manage their financial affairs in the future.
