FARE continues to lead discussions on alcohol policy and prevention strategies across Australia. As the only not-for-profit organisation focusing solely on preventing alcohol harms, FARE works collaboratively to advocate for evidence-based policies to reduce alcohol harms.
The Foundation supports policy reforms that contribute to a reduction in alcohol-related harms in Australia. Our policy work is informed by the evidence of what is most effective in reducing alcohol-related harms. We support the progression of population-based health measures, which take into consideration the far reaching and complex impacts of alcohol-related harms.
We work collaboratively with a range of organisations, government agencies, law enforcement, medical professionals, and community representatives to pursue policy reform.
