Victorians for policy reform
Let's be honest:Alcohol causes cancer
Alcohol Change Vic is a collaboration of health and allied agencies that share a vision of a community that supports all Victorians to be healthy and well.
We campaign for policy change to free Victorians from the significant harm and health impacts caused by the alcohol industry and its products.
6,000 deaths every yearAlcohol products kill nearly 6,000 Australians each year.
7 types of cancerAlcohol is a cause of at least seven types of cancer: breast, bowel, mouth, pharynx, larynx, oesophagus and liver.
There are concerns on-demand alcohol delivery is fuelling a wave of violence in Victorian homes, with a new survey revealing more than a third of on-demand users reported verbal or physical abuse or fear due to a person affected by alcohol at least once in the last 12 months.
Today's long awaited Bill to reform Victoria's Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 (Liquor Act) will fail to reduce family violence and alcohol-related harms. This is despite Victoria's Royal Commission into Family Violence recommending that the review of the Act focus on these issues and that the Government consult with family violence advocates and community organisations over five years ago.
