A new policy for reducing harm

Council plays an important role in reducing the harm caused by alcohol and other drugs in our community.

It is committed to social justice and equity for all and has a vital role to play as a leader, partner, advocate, and planner in developing and implementing strategies to protect and promote health, now and into the future.

The Reducing Harm from Alcohol and Other Drugs Policy 2023-2028, endorsed at the May 2024 Council meeting, will ensure we continue to support our community in this space.

You can read the Council report and watch a livestream of the Council meeting on our website.
