The High Court has upheld the Problem Gambling Foundation’s application for judicial review.

The Salvation Army will continue to provide free clinical and public health gambling harm services across six main regional centres with a further nine satellite clinics and welcomes the clarity the High Court's decision brings to the sector.

“The preventing and minimising gambling harm sector is one in which all providers need to work closely together to achieve the best for our communities,” said Commissioner Alistair Herring, National Director of The Salvation Army’s Addiction Services.

“We will continue to collaborate with all other providers,” said Herring.

“As one of the earliest problem gambling providers, The Salvation Army remains focused on meeting the needs of those affected by gambling-related harm in New Zealand.”
