Taranaki Alcohol Harm Reduction Group
Preventing alcohol-related harm is a key priority for New Plymouth Injury Safe (NPiS) due to it being a major contributor of injuries. NPiS has rejuvenated the Taranaki Alcohol Harm Reduction Group and are exploring, with other stakeholders how to best support gathering of local alcohol-related data to help to decide the best focus of local initiatives.
One such potential area is the attitudes of parents/caregivers towards the supply of alcohol to young people. Another is considering what could be done at a policy level. A priority will be to make sure a balanced approach is taken basing the choice on evidence and what is proven to be the most effective for chosen projects.
We would like to hear from anyone who has an interest in the prevention of alcohol related-harm, and warmly invite them to contact us to be put on the email list for future correspondence and meeting invitations. Please contact [email protected]
