Mapu Maia has well established connection with Pacific communities, Pacific leaders, agencies and social services including government and non-government agencies. Additionally, we partner with grassroots organisations to collaborate on community projects, promote Pacific health messages and raise awareness of help services available through radio programmes, community events and social media campaigns.
We regularly run workshops and deliver presentations to church groups, sports teams, agencies and services on well-being, gambling harm, recognising symptoms, co-existing issues and help services. We provide evidence-based fact sheets, information and support to communities so that they are able to have an informed voice when addressing social issues and gambling harm within their own communities.
We all have Heroes in our lives and we want to celebrate them by telling their stories.
It could be a member of your family, your friends or someone in the community that inspires you. Tell us who your everyday hero is and why.
Gambling Harm Awareness Week takes place every year during the first week in September. This year, GHAW is taking place from 31 August and 6 September 2020.
We are now planning our GHAW activities. if you're keen to get involved, let us know!
