The Northern Beaches community has been lobbying councillors since November last year to bring in a policy to minimise gambling harm.
$2.5 million is lost every week on the Peninsula – that’s more than just dollars, it’s a huge amount of family distress and unhappiness.
Let’s start to turn that around with a Gambling Harm Prevention Policy from Council, and a framework for action. But, it all hinges on the councillors adopting the policy on September 25.
Send a letter to push the Councillors to adopt this Policy!
They need to hear that you expect them to follow what the community has said – vote in favour of the policy, not in favour of the pokies.
Greens Councillor Natalie Warren and Liberal Councillor Pat Daley who started this process with a motion to cap pokies and research a policy back in November 2017.
