Campaign Information | What About You?

What about you? is a campaign to promote low risk drinking and address issues associated with alcohol-related harm in the Wairarapa.

The campaign was developed following research into alcohol-related issues and priority areas in the region. You can download a copy of the research report here.

The study highlighted:

  • the need for more alcohol-related information and education in the local community
  • opportunities for greater collaboration on alcohol-related issues between agencies in the region
  • the importance of raising awareness about the alcohol support services that are available locally and how to access these.

A number of organisations and agencies are involved in the campaign including:

  • Wairarapa DHB
  • Regional Public Health
  • Tū Ora Compass Health
  • Masterton District Council
  • Carterton District Council
  • South Wairarapa District Council
  • Trust House
  • Wairarapa Road Safety Council
  • Wairarapa Safer Community Trust
  • Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD)
  • Pathways
  • Te Hauora Runanga o Wairarapa
  • Whaiora
  • ACC
  • Sport Wellington Wairarapa

The campaign has been designed so it can be used by other groups and organisations that are keen to be involved in developing a region that has a safe, low risk drinking culture.
