Whole of Strategy Evaluation of the Petrol Sniffing Strategy: Future Directions for the PSS: Final Report


This final report, completed in January 2013, provides a high-level strategic review of the implementation of the Petrol Sniffing Strategy (PSS) since its inception in 2005 and provides guidance on the future management and structure of the PSS. The evaluation examines the management and implementation of the PSS Eight Point Plan to control petrol sniffing, using case studies in the East Kimberley and Ngaanyatjarra Lands in Western Australia to investigate how well components of the PSS interact at specific locations, whether it is effective and sustainable at a regional level and how effective the partnership approach is at the whole of government level. The evaluation found that the PSS has achieved a dramatic reduction in the prevalence of petrol sniffing across much of remote Australia, particularly through the roll out of low aromatic fuel and the provision of targeted youth diversionary services.
