Culturally informed therapeutic services
MCFPS is designed to support individuals from multicultural backgrounds and communities in-language.
Our services aim to support community members from migrant, refugee, and multicultural backgrounds to overcome the negative effects of gambling.
MCFPS considers the whole individual. It addresses problematic gambling behaviours and uses culturally aware planning to meet participants’ full needs. Cultural aware planning includes the promotion of a participant’s connection to culture, religion, language, and community.
Although our services are tailored to support the specific needs of culturally and linguistically diverse individuals, the program caters to all individuals experiencing gambling harm.
MCFPS is delivered by SSI with funding and support from the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation.
Community Support Fund
The Community Support Fund provides grants of up to $2000 to community groups to deliver community information and/or education activities about gambling harm.
The aim of the fund is to support community groups increase awareness of gambling harm within their communities and to inform them of where they can seek help.
