Alcohol and Other Drugs

Alcohol and other drugs is consistently raised by workers and services in the youth sector as being one of the top three issues for young people aged 12 - 25 years, alongside mental health and housing / homelessness. The Youth Coalition provides advocacy relating to young people and alcohol and other drugs (AOD) in a range of cross-sectoral forums, submissions, committees and other activities, which is based upon the policy positions and commitments outlined in the Youth Coalition's Policy Platform on Alcohol and Other Drugs.
