The Art of Community Alcohol Management – Preventing Harms Kit
Some of the benefits to local governments delivering the alcohol prevention actions outlined in The How to Guide include:
- Fewer alcohol-related risks and liabilities, waste collection and cleaning, complaints (e.g. noise, antisocial behaviour), alcohol-related crime (e.g. physical and sexual assault, property damage)
- Changing social and cultural norms to promote activities that do not feature alcohol consumption as a central component
- Cost savings (e.g. property damage, insurance costs and legal costs associated with alcohol-related injuries) and sharing resources and improved revenue for council (e.g. through application process, festival sponsorship)
- Legislative compliance.
