The National Council on Problem Gambling raises public awareness about problem gambling through outreach programmes such as outreach talks, seminars, workshops and road shows to the community, corporations, schools and institutions of higher learning.
Our programmes seek to:
a) Create awareness on the harms of problem gambling and how it can affect individuals, families, friends and the community;
b) Promote upstream education on preventing problem gambling from occurring;
c) Encourage personal responsibility in seeking help; and
d) Publicise the National Problem Gambling Helpline as the main contact point for all information, referral and help services.
Corporate and Community Programme
For community groups and corporations, NCPG runs outreach programmes and talks that cover the fundamentals of problem gambling and related issues. People can sign up for self-exclusion from selected gambling venues during these programmes/talks.
NCPG runs Gambling Prevention Programmes to youths in secondary school and tertiary institutions. These programmes provide upstream, preventive education to youths in a fun and interactive way through workshops and roadshows.

NCPG provides funding and other related support to organisations and educational institutions that embark on initiatives to educate their members or the public about problem gambling.
