8.7.1.20 Objectives of the Cashless Debit Card Trial

Objectives

The objectives of the Cashless Debit Card Trial are to:

  • reduce the amount of money in the community that is available to be spent on alcohol, gambling and illegal drugs,
  • determine whether such a reduction decreases violence or harm in trial areas,
  • determine whether such arrangements are more effective when community bodies are involved, and
  • encourage socially responsible behaviour.
