Problem Gambling Foundation Loses Funding

The government has announced that the main provider of services for problem gamblers will be the Salvation Army. Some commentators have argued that this cut to funding is in retaliation for the Foundation's criticisms of the Sky City convention deal, however it has been pointed out that the Salvation Army was also critical of this deal.

However, what is more concerning is that as the only organisation to solely focus on the harm caused to communities and families from problem gambling, the Foundations advocacy work may be lost.
