More drug teams announced
A LOCAL Drug Action Team (LDAT) has been announced for the Rockingham/ Kwinana region to prevent alcohol and other drug harms at a grassroots level.
The number of LDATs across Australia has now more than doubled, with 92 new community partnerships joining 80 existing LDATs.
The LDAT program supports organisations to build or extend partnerships in their community and use local knowledge to deliver evidence-informed alcohol and other drug harm prevention projects, tailored to the needs of their local area.
Nationally, more than 1000 organisations are committed to the program. The lead organisation for the LDAT in the Rockingham/ Kwinana region is Local Drug Action Groups Incorporated.
The LDAT is set to focus on working with the whole of the community to prevent harms from alcohol and other drugs.
LDATs receive an initial $10,000 funding from the Government and are supported by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to finalise a Community Action Plan.
