A Bacchus Marsh drug action group has received funding to help stop ice ruining more lives. 

The Moorabool Drug Action Group was one of 12 Victorian community groups to receive funding to deliver workshops, forums, local campaigns and training for young people. 

The $118,000 funding announcement forms part of the state government’s $57.6 million Ice Action Plan. 

“We know community support is the key to beating ice and keeping people out of prisons and courts,” Minister for mental health Martin Foley said at Wednesday’s announcement.

“Locals are the key to success – they know what will work for their area. This funding will support them to come up with the plans that will rid their community of ice.”
