Event support program

 

Overview

The Event Support Program (ESP) aims to raise awareness and understanding of tobacco smoking issues for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders, and promote a positive attitude towards a smoke-free lifestyle.

The program helps community groups to stage sporting and cultural events through the provision of small grants and resources that promote culturally effective anti-smoking messages.

The key ESP messages developed by north Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are "Smoking: It can cost us the game"; and "Tobacco: It could cost us our culture". Event organisers are required to enter into a contract before grants are provided, and an evaluation of recall of the anti-smoking messages is conducted at each event.
