Research plays an important role in addressing gambling harm in NSW. We commission and fund research to build an evidence-base for gambling harm minimisation that:

  • informs improvements to policy and regulation
  • evaluates and guides improvements to programs and support
  • contributes to an informed public debate on gambling harm, increasing community awareness and understanding
  • anticipates and keeps pace with emerging trends.

The Responsible Gambling Fund (RGF) Research Agenda 2021-2024 guides all our research and aligns with the Office of Responsible Gambling 2021-2024 strategic plan.
