We are currently inviting young people in Western Australia aged between 12-17 to share their thoughts on marketing strategies used by the gambling industry. We want to work with young people to further understand their perspectives towards gambling industry marketing strategies. The findings from this study will help develop advocacy efforts to protect children and young people against harmful industry marketing.
