Western Sydney Community Forum (WSCF)
Culturally Responsive Practice: Gambling Related Harm Launch & Symposium
27 April 2021, 9.30am-12.00pm
Holiday Inn Parramatta, 18-40 Anderson St, Parramatta
WSCF invites you to attend this Symposium to launch their Culturally Responsive Framework to Address Gambling Related Harm.
The Framework is based on the findings of a participatory action research project funded by the NSW Government's Responsible Gambling Fund.
Gambling harm extends beyond individuals to include families, communities and societies, with risk increasing markedly for some groups, including those who speak a language other than English at home. The purpose of the Framework is to enhance the capacity of providing appropriate and effective responses to those experiencing and impacted by gambling related harm.
The Symposium will present and integrate:
- lived experience,
- practice experience, and
- research experience.
There will also be guided interactive simulations of the Framework and its implementation tools.
The Symposium will be held live through a hybrid face to face and digital platform, engaging a broad cross section of groups, agencies, and services.
