Inquiry into alcohol use in Indigenous communities

Date posted: 24 February 2014

Indigenous organisations have called for effective community consultation as the Federal Government launches a new inquiry into alcohol consumption in Indigenous communities.

The parliamentary inquiry was initially intended to look at alcohol-related violence across the country but has now been narrowed to deal specifically with Indigenous communities.

Some Indigenous health groups are hopeful the inquiry could lead to more effective strategies to tackle alcohol use, providing Indigenous communities are properly engaged as part of the process.
