The role of the National Coordination Service enables an opportunity for Māori leadership in the field of gambling harm minimisation. A unique position that provides certain workforce development and research perspectives among those tasked with preventing and minimising gambling harm throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.

We seek to increase the prioritisation of what happens "when you get it right for Māori" and that is "you get it right for everyone". Key connections in Addiction Treatment, Public Health, Research, and Evaluation are critical elements in this work and as such work with a wide range of mental health and addictions services and other likeminded organisations to address the harm caused by gambling. 

This service works in collaboration with the Ministry of Health to ensure a consistent and coordinated approach for all gambling service providers across Aotearoa, both clinical and public health, are provided with the adequate support to provide high-quality services to the communities they serve.
