The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education’s (FARE) Annual alcohol poll (the Poll) assesses Australians’ attitudes
towards alcohol, alcohol consumption behaviours, awareness and experiences of alcohol harms and perspectives on
various alcohol policies. In 2016, the Poll was carried out by Galaxy Research for the seventh consecutive year.
The aim of this study was to assess the impact of an alcohol management intervention on community sporting club revenue (total annual income) and membership (number of club players, teams and spectators). This study found no evidence to suggest that efforts to reduce alcohol-related harm in community sporting clubs will compromise club revenue and membership.
The aim of this study was to: quantify and compare the extent to which alcohol is used at secondary school events when students are present; examine principals’ level of agreement with these practices; and their awareness of and support for state policies on this issue. A cross-sectional survey of 241 state government secondary school principals in New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria (VIC) was conducted in November 2014 via computer-assisted telephone interviewing.
There was a significant drop in parental supply of current alcohol use from 21.3 % in 2004 to 11.79 % in 2013 (p < .001). The lower prevalence of parental supply coincided with legislative changes on parental supply of alcohol to adolescents, but causality cannot be established because of the variation in the timing and reach of parental supply legislation, and small samples in some states. There were downward trends in adolescent experimentation, quantity and frequency of alcohol use across years, with the largest drop in alcohol use in 2010 and 2013.
This booklet supports parents in talking to their teenagers about alcohol.
This longitudinal study examines the links between the context of alcohol use and risky adolescent drinking. It questions whether the early introduction of alcohol in a controlled supervised environment is protective against future risky drinking.
Seriously Smashed is a unique resource for young people, parents, and those working with young people. It explores the risks of drinking too much and highlights such issues as reckless behaviour, sex under the influence, breaking the law, bullying and violence.
This discussion guide gives parents tips and advice about talking to children about alcohol.
