GAMBLING HARM REDUCTION
The NSW Liberal, National and Labor parties are addicted to pokies profits and in lock step when it comes to pokies in our state.
A whopping $6.4 billion is being drained by pokies from communities in NSW every year, with communities that can least afford it being hit hardest by the pokies pain. For many, this pain is felt through housing insecurity, homelessness, family breakdown, domestic violence, and suicide.
Cate’s been fighting for madatory cashless gambling cards, $1 bet limits on gambling machines, an end to rewards programs designed to addict, transparent, real-time reporting of pokies data and a to phase pokies out of pubs and clubs.
