The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) are seeking support from hotels to help raise awareness of the risks of supplying alcohol to under 18s by promoting their, ‘What are you really buying them?’ campaign.
In the coming weeks you’ll receive materials in the mail – including A5 cards and posters, depending your venue – to display in-store or venue. These will replace the ‘Most expensive drink’ campaign posters and can be displayed either within your main premises or takeaway outlet, including near your fridges or shelves, or at the point of sale.
Research has shown us that up to 1 in 5 under 18s are victims of alcohol-related incidents. As take-away liquor providers, we’re in a unique position to help reduce this statistic by raising awareness of the potential risks associated with supplying alcohol to minors, including harm from risk-taking behaviour, physical violence and sexual assault. The minors could also be fined $400 for possessing alcohol.
If you have digital displays in-venue, an LCD image is available for download here.
Any support you can provide to help your patrons ‘think before supplying the drink’ is greatly appreciated.
