Youth Alcohol Action Plan 2022-2025

The Belmont /Victoria Park / South Perth Local Drug Action Group launched their Youth Alcohol Action plan for 2022-2025 at the John McGrath Pavilion, South Perth on the 1st June 2022.

The event was the culmination of 12 months of collaboration and consultation with 26 state and local service providers, and approximately 50 young people living within the City of Belmont and City of South Perth.

Information collected formed the 5 focus areas of the Plan to minimise the harm to young people caused by alcohol within Belmont, Victoria Park, and South Perth. These include: Underage drinking; Adult supply; Marketing; Accessibility; and Community connections.

Injury Matters’ General Manager of Injury Prevention Sam Menezes was the MC at the launch, which was attended by key stakeholders including local government, WA Police Force, Cancer Council WA, Mental Health Commission, local school representatives, and a variety of non-government service providers including Injury Matters.

Congratulations to all those informed in developing the Plan.
