The Victorian Health Promotion Foundation, best known as VicHealth, contributes to debates about alcohol use and misuse, and supports programs that promote responsible drinking. The Foundation works in partnership with organisations, communities and individuals to encourage a better drinking culture.

VicHealth supports a mix of investigator-led research, strategic research and evaluation research to build evidence for health promotion interventions.

Turning Point Alcohol & Drug Centre

Turning Point Alcohol & Drug Centre aims to promote and maximise the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities living with, and affected by alcohol and other drug-related harm. The treatment and research centre, part of Eastern Health and formally affiliated with Monash University, specialises in the drug and alcohol field by:

  • creating a thriving service delivery, research and development cultures that produce the best possible knowledge
  • applying research to promote change and contribute to policy making
  • building our community capacity through strategic relationships, partnerships and collaborations.

National Drug Law Enforcement Research Fund

The National Drug Law Enforcement Research Fund (NDLERF) promotes quality evidence-based practice in drug law enforcement to prevent and reduce the harmful effects of licit and illicit drug use in Australian society. Established in 1999, it is funded by the Federal Department of Health until 30 June 2015.

A range of studies relating to understanding, preventing and policing alcohol-based harm is available on the NDLERF website.

Allen Consulting Group

As part of the review of licence fees and types, the Allen Consulting Group were commissioned to:

  • examine the link between alcohol-related harm and the operation of licensed premises
  • identify and assess models for attributing costs arising.

The Alcohol-related harm study (PDF, 1.5MB) report was a key input to the design of the proposed risk-based licensing system.

KPMG

In November 2008, KPMG completed an independent evaluation (PDF, 833KB) of the Melbourne CBD temporary lockout that examined how well it addressed alcohol-related violence and antisocial behaviour.
