Gambling Harm Awareness Week 2022

Monday 5 September marks the start of Gambling Harm Awareness Week (GHAW) and runs to Sunday 11 September 2022.

Safer Gambling Aotearoa

This year for GHAW we recognise that community needs are different across the motu, and GHAW needs to reflect this.

We encourage PMGH providers to align their activities and messages with what’s best for their communities.

A GHAW resource pack has been produced and will be sent to PMGH providers to support their local GHAW initiatives. The resources will align with the Safer Gambling Aotearoa (SGA) brand and the Nan's Song campaign.
Resources aligned with the Nan’s Song campaign can be found on the PMGH Sector Support page.

GHAW will be supported with national promotion of social media messages celebrating SGA and GHAW initiatives across the motu.

Help spread the word

Resources are available to support your GHAW activities and help promote the new kōrero message, in your communities.

Instructions for use

Printed single-sided, full colour, A4 or A3, formatted for standard office printers.

There are two poster variations (Me kōrero tātou and Tatou Talanoa).

These posters are designed with a direct call-to-action to contact a FREE support service. The posters can be used in a range of settings to prompt people to do this.

There is a blank white space at the bottom of the posters for your service to write your contact details. The pdf is editable when opened in Acrobat reader, so you can type directly into them before printing, or print and write it by hand in the space.

Social Media Post

Here are two posts already prepared that you can use on your Facebook page. You may wish to change the post text to suit your organisation and your audience, and include links to your service rather than the Safer Gambling Aotearoa website.

Instructions for use

If you have Facebook, you can use either of these posts to help promote the message and engage with your community.

The creative content is designed to be easily shared on social media. Help spread the word by linking to and sharing any of the content from these pages. If you’re creating your own posts, feel free to tag @SaferGamblingAotearoa and use #Mekōrerotātou and #TatouTalanoa to connect with us.
