ALAC strategy session held at hui

7:03 am on 5 May 2009

Maori community workers and whanau united on Monday in Whangarei at a hui to discuss a Youth and Maori engagement strategy for the Alcohol Liquor Advisory Council.

ALAC northern regional manager Shirleyanne Brown says one kaupapa everyone agrees on is that Maori need to address the issue and share the work if they want to reduce the harm of alcohol on whanau.

Waatea News reports the hui was the first of a series of eight ALAC being held around the motu this month.
