LIQUOR & GAMBLING

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 poorer communities being hit the 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 $1 bet limits on gambling machines, an end to rewards programs designed to addict and transparent, real-time reporting of pokies data. 

She’s actively working to limit alcohol harm including by ensuring online sales and supports the campaign to end alcohol advertising to minors.
