Wests Illawarra Welcomes OK2PLAY?
OK2PLAY? is a new digital platform that checks in with our members prior to entering the venue to confirm they feel “OK”
Let's talk about it OK2PLAY?
As part of our ongoing care and commitment to our community, it is our pleasure to announce that our members and guests will have access to Ok2Play?, a world leading technology which aims to normalise conversations about gambling and mental health, and ensuring it is socially acceptable to ask for help.
OK2PLAY? is a new digital platform that checks in with our members prior to entering the venue to confirm they feel “OK”, or safe to play.
Developed to increase the speed of response between members and guests of our club and our staff, Ok2play? creates the pathway for discreet, seamless, and frictionless connection for club patrons to assistance in real time. Ok2Play? also takes away any time barrier that may be experienced by club patrons that require assistance. At the push of a button, or by scanning a QR code, a message is sent directly to senior management, who can reach out to you in a matter of moments. Club management can then use the appropriate channels to assist in gaining access to the relevant services.
Mental health and wellbeing are important to our members, guests and the community in which we operate. Ok2Play? helps normalise these conversations. We want to help connect those who are struggling, with support in a discreet and private way. We have always taken our role in our community seriously and the introduction of Ok2Play? is just the latest in a series of initiatives we have introduced to ensure our staff, members and guests are cared for.
