SOUTH AUSTRALIA:  The SA State Government will inject an additional one million dollars a year into South Australia’s Gamblers Rehabilitation Fund, to further enhance the mechanisms for support people at risk of gambling related harm.  The Attorney-General, Vickie Chapman MP said that if the reforms pass State Parliament, the additional funding would be used to fund support services like in-venue counsellors who are properly trained to visit venues and interact with patrons to assist in the early intervention of people at risk of gambling harm, among other options broader than what is currently offered by the Fund.
