Gambling Solutions experiencing increased demand across the Coast
On the back of recent reviews of gaming machine spend on the Central Coast, Coast Community Connections’ free gambling counselling service, Gambling Solutions, confirms that it is experiencing an increase in demand for its services each and every day.
A recent NSW Government report identified the Central Coast and specifically the Peninsula area as having “a high gambling risk” and Gambling Solutions, funded by the Responsible Gambling Fund, has doubled its support staff in the last two years.
