VICTORIA:  The Andrews Labor Government is backing an innovative problem gambling project targeting apprentices working in Victoria’s building and construction industry. Minister for Gaming and Liquor Regulation Marlene Kairouz joined apprentices from Incolink’s Apprentice Prevention Education Project to launch Responsible Gambling Awareness Week (RGAW) 2017 at RMIT University. Education programs are vital for industries like building and construction, which employ large numbers of young people at risk of gambling-related harm. The project is funded by the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation and holds workshops for first and second-year building and construction industry apprentices at TAFEs throughout metropolitan and regional Victoria. It has reached more than 3500 apprentices at 25 TAFEs across Victoria.
