VicHealth Alcohol Culture Change Initiative
The Alcohol Culture Change Initiative aims to improve cultures of risky dinking within subpopulations in Victoria. In collaboration with the Primary Care Partnership, Peninsula Health, Frankston City Council and Chisholm TAFE, Mornington Peninsula Shire Council was successful with an Alcohol Culture Change Grants for Local Councils to lead a local project to gain a deeper understanding of alcohol cultures amongst subpopulations of risky drinkers across the Frankston Mornington Peninsula catchment.
