2017 Alcohol, Gambling, and Family Violence Forum

The MAV hosted an Alcohol, Gambling, and Family Violence Forum for Local Government in March.

The forum took a targeted approach directed at examining the emerging links between family violence, alcohol, and gambling. It was aimed at assisting local government in the development of upcoming Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plans. Presenters focused on research in this area, harms associated with alcohol and gambling and impacts on local communities.

The forum brought together council staff from public health, community safety and PVAW sectors, allowing for cross-sector communication, collaboration and dialogue.
