Responsible Gambling Code of Practice
The AHA (NT) and community service organisations worked in close partnership with the Northern Territory Government to develop and implement the Responsible Gambling Code of Practice (the Code). This initiative is aimed at addressing and minimising the levels of gambling related harm. The Code was initially established with industry on a voluntary basis and with total support of the industry the Code became law in 2006.
The AHA (NT) works closely with Amity Community Services in promoting Responisble Gambling Awareness Week and services available to problem gamblers. For further information on services offered by Amity please follow the link or contact 8944 6565.
