Funded by the Northern Territory Department of Justice (Community Benefit Fund), this scoping study investigated the nature, the extent and the outcomes of gambling-related problems in Non-English Speaking Background (NESB) communities in the Northern Territory (NT). It identifies strategies recommended by the NESB community leaders and counselling organisations to prevent harms from problem gambling in the future. The empirical data collection occurred in two phases in 2020-2021 in Darwin and Alice Springs. In the first phase scoping phone interviews were conducted with the NESB community leaders and representatives of the counselling organisations. They enabled the research team to identify those NESB communities where gambling-related problems are present and to fine-tune the questions that were asked in the second phase. That phase of the interviews occurred in person in Darwin (with 2 exceptions where Zoom was used) and by phone in Alice Springs. These interviews were longer and in-depth. Questions that were used in both phases of the research are available in the Appendix.
