Alcohol Harm Community Consultation

Did you know that alcohol is the most used drug in Australia?

We want to reduce the harmful effects of alcohol in our local community and you can help us determine the best way to do this.

The City of Kingston, in conjunction with the Monash Kingston Drug and Alcohol Action Team (MKDAAT) is seeking your thoughts on alcohol harm in the community. The survey will take about 5-7 mins to complete.

We are interested in finding out people’s awareness of what constitutes risky drinking, what harms they perceive associated with risky drinking and what preventative actions we can implement at a local level.

The information provided will help us to develop a plan to address risky drinking within our community. This is a partnership project with Monash Council, Monash Health, Victoria Police and local health service providers.

We have funding from the Australian Drug Foundation (ADF) to develop a Community Action Plan (CAP), the data collected from this survey will be collated and along with other data collected, inform the development of the CAP and further funding opportunities to implement this within the Cities of Kingston and Monash.

We have consulted with service providers in Kingston and Monash and the next phase is to gain feedback from the community.

We'd love to hear your feedback via the below survey.
