The Salvation Army Oasis takes a public health approach to gambling harm. We focus on early intervention and prevention through education, awareness-raising, community partnerships, and by promoting policies that enable people to be healthy and well.

Our prevention initiatives include:
- Raising awareness of the signs and significance of gambling harm in the community, and among health and welfare professionals;
- Promoting early gambling screening and referral processes in health and welfare agencies and gambling venues;
- Supporting community-led projects; and
- Providing evidence-based policy advice to local and national government and related organisations.
