Community Efforts to Prevent Injury

 

Overview

This research project is looking at a range of community actions to prevent alcohol harms in two communities in New South Wales (NSW).

The project has three standardised core components that will allow it to be implemented elsewhere if shown to be effective:

Community events will be conducted inviting Aboriginal people of all ages and backgrounds to participate. This project will consult and engage service providers from every area, including Aboriginal organisations, government and non-government departments. It is anticipated that a committee representing the local Aboriginal people involved in the study will be established to help guide the research.

This project will document what communities themselves can do at relatively low cost to prevent or address alcohol problems.
