The Australian Gambling Research Centre (AGRC) at the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) is conducting a research study about gambling trends in Australia. McNair yellowSquares is their fieldwork partner.

The aim of the study is to monitor trends in gambling participation and impacts on health and wellbeing. Findings from the study will help to inform the development and implementation of evidence-based policy and practice responses to prevent and reduce gambling-related harm in Australia.

How you can help:

McNair yellowSquares are seeking people who gamble on land-based poker machines (‘pokies’) to complete a confidential online survey during July through September 2022. The survey should take about 15-20 minutes to complete. For their time, participants will be offered to enter into a draw to win one of five $200 gift vouchers.

Surveying as many participants as possible is critical to understanding the experiences and views of people who gamble on pokies and we are seeking the assistance of community organisations and service providers to help us to promote the study.

Next steps:

We have attached a copy of our recruitment flyer for your information. We would be very grateful for your assistance to post the flyer on your service/community notice board/s or to distribute it to your clients or members through other means, which can include electronically (e.g., via email, online newsletters, social media etc).  We can post or drop off hard copies of this flyer.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the McNair yellowSquares team at: [email protected]. For further information about the AGRC, please do not hesitate to contact me at: [email protected]

A summary of key findings from the project will be available on the AGRC website in late 2022: Australian Gambling Research Centre (aifs.gov.au)
