Mō tō mātou rōpū - About our team
The Tobacco, Alcohol and Drug team is made up of passionate public health advisors who work across the issues of tobacco, alcohol and drugs. We have public health advisors who adopt a broad approach using regulatory and promotional activities to support the responsible supply of alcohol, promote moderate consumption and encourage harm reduction in the Wellington region. Our promotional activities raise awareness of alcohol issues, promote and support effective alcohol policies. Our regulatory activities seek to improve accountability in alcohol retailing. We work alongside alcohol retailers, councils and the police, to foster the responsible sale and supply of alcohol. We work on tobacco and vaping in many areas including legislation enforcement, supporting Smokefree/vape free policies and supporting quit facilitation for smokers. All tobacco control efforts make a contribution to the Smokefree Aotearoa 2025 goal and therefore the whole population. Our CAYAD team uses a community action approach that is a strategy for creating community-based change towards specific social and environmental policy objectives at a national and community level.
