Stopping harm

caused by alcohol

The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to stop the harm caused by alcohol.  Alcohol harm in Australia is significant. Nearly 6,000 lives are lost every year and more than 144,000 people are hospitalised making alcohol one of our nation’s greatest preventative health challenges.

As a leading advocate of evidence-based research, FARE contributes to policies and programs that support the public good, while holding the alcohol industry to account. FARE works with leading researchers, communities, governments, health professionals and frontline service providers to bring about change and reduce alcohol harm.

Health promotion campaigns

FARE develops and advocates for policies and programs that work. We undertake and communicate world-leading research to governments and decision-makers to advance and inform strategies to prevent alcohol harm in Australia. We educate and mobilise Australian communities and organisations to work collectively together. And we defend the public interest, promoting open decision-making and holding the alcohol industry to account.

FARE in the news

FARE is the only independent organisation focussed exclusively on alcohol harm in Australia. We follow and contribute to meaningful discussions about alcohol consumption, attitudes, behaviours, treatment, education, alcohol-related harms and policies. Our goal is to ensure that the Foundation’s policy positions and advocacy efforts are articulated and broadcast widely, that our evidence-based research is understood and accessible, and that the outstanding work of the organisations and individuals we partner with is showcased.
