Kings Community Action Group on Gambling

Located In Kings County (NS)
Areas Served Kings County (NS)
Description & Services
Information Kings Community Action Group on Gambling (KCAGoG) goals include to increase awareness of the impact of gambling harm in Kings County and to support local businesses and organizations to decrease their reliance on gambling revenues. 
We believe that the most serious harms in Kings County occur from the use of VLT machines, often called the “crack cocaine of gambling” because of how easy it is to become dependent on them. We are NOT an anti-gambling organization. We seek to reduce harms. We seek to work in conjunction with local business, local organizations and local government to raise awareness of the harms of VLT machines and to help move these entities towards alternate business plans and revenue streams that are not harmful to their customers, their members, their citizens. We see ourselves as partners and allies to all three groups, not as adversaries. We have a strong board with a variety of skills, training and interests. 
Members of KCAGoG have adopted the motto “In my backyard”. They want local citizens to have a say in the direction legislation on gambling will take; they want local government to take ownership of the problem of gambling in our county. By doing so, the group feels people will have control over what is happening close to home, affecting the well-being of their own community. 
If you are interested in volunteering with KCAGoG, contact us! If your organization would like to partner with us, contact us!
