The Good Sports program is running two forums in Bunbury to help you learn how your sports club can support its members and the community to prevent and take action towards alcohol and drug use. With more people dying from alcohol-related issues than the national road toll, sporting clubs can provide environments that influence individual behaviour.
Sport is a powerful vehicle for promoting social change, and the forum will highlight the steps you can take individually, and as a sporting club to affect long term change and create healthy and safe environments.
