The Burnie Works Local Drug Action Team is working to increase protective factors in the Burnie community, to reduce harm from alcohol and drug use.

The community action plan targets two protective factors: family connection and emotional intelligence - and is the first municipality to take this approach in tackling these issues.

Funding will be used to provide workshops for parents in Burnie about parenting and emotional intelligence skills. The funding will also provide training to service providers in understanding and building emotional intelligence skills. The workshops and training will use the RULER program.
