The Relationship Between Gambling & Domestic Violence Against Women


CQUniversity is conducting a study into the relationship between gambling and domestic violence (DV) against women – including physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse. It aims to improve DV support and gambling help services for women.


Gambler’s Help City & Inner North is assisting CQU by inviting people with any of the experiences below to participate in confidential interviews between July-Dec 2018:


  • Women affected by DV linked to their own or a male partner’s gambling, or who use gambling venues as a “safe space” to escape from DV.
  • Women affected by financial abuse linked to a male partner’s gambling.
  • Men who have engaged in a behaviour change program for controlling or violent behaviours towards a female partner, and where gambling was an issue for either of them.

The study is funded by Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS). Ethics approval numbers: CQUniversity (0000020852), Relationships Australia NSW (111217_4), and UnitingCare Queensland (approval no. 22618).
