Developing and conducting a capacity building program that will educate, inspire, equip and empower residents and other stakeholders (e.g. service providers) to advocate against the excessive level of access to alcohol in their community
Liquor license applications can potentially increase alcohol-related harm within disadvantaged communities in SWSLHD. A recent CHETRE led consultation about the spectrum of alcohol-related problems in the Miller community identified the top two issues being public drinking and access to alcohol. Stakeholders are able and willing, but generally lack confidence, knowledge, and skills to participate in the advocacy process to reduce alcohol-related harm in their community.
