The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) is a not-for-profit organisation with a vision for an Australia free from alcohol harms – where communities are healthy and well, and where laws, policies and programs are fair, equitable and just.  

Every day, people across Australia are negatively impacted by alcohol, through injury, violence, mental ill-health, chronic disease, family violence and disadvantage. Far too many Australians die because of alcohol. 

We work collaboratively to build the capacity of people wanting to create change, raise community awareness of alcohol harms, advocate for policy change aimed at preventing alcohol-related harms and increase accountability of companies that fuel harm.  

Working with local communities, people with lived experience of alcohol harm, values-aligned organisations, health professionals, researchers and governments across the nation, we are improving the health and wellbeing of everyone in Australia. 

Our values


We work with and are informed by a diverse community of people and organisations who are passionate about creating change to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians. 


We listen and seek to understand the views of people directly impacted by alcohol harm, having their voices guide our work. 


We know lasting change can only happen if we elevate the voices of the community ahead of people with vested interests and we don’t shy away from this challenge. 


We focus on achieving the best outcomes for communities and learn and grow by evaluating our work to extend our impact. 

Our strategic focus

FARE’s 2024-2027 Strategic Plan outlines our focus and goals for the next few years. Through our work, we aim to make sure: 

  • People are empowered to drive change that improves community health and wellbeing.
  • Communities have access to honest and accurate information, and resources to improve their health and wellbeing. 
  • Decision-makers implement laws, policies and programs that prioritise community health, wellbeing and equity.
  • Community health, wellbeing and equity is prioritised ahead of the interests of companies that profit from and fuel alcohol harms.

More than 20 years of impact

In December 2021, we celebrated our 20th birthday. 

We are incredibly proud of what we have accomplished together in more than two decades – and are so excited for what’s to come.   

From contributing to world-leading research on reducing alcohol harm, to reaching millions of Australians with evidence-based advice to avoid alcohol during pregnancy, and increasing industry accountability – this has set a strong foundation for us to achieve so much more change!  

We know this is only made possible through the contributions of the amazing organisations and people who support us as we work towards our vision of an Australia free from alcohol harm. 

Annual reports

Our annual report for the financial year 2022-23 is now online – and it has been incredible to reflect on what we’ve achieved together this past year.  

We had a clear vision of the impact we wanted to see in our communities.  

We wanted to provide honest and accurate information in our health promotion work and work with decision-makers to implement policies that improve the health and wellbeing of our communities. We also wanted to engage with communities across Australia through people-led advocacy.  

And that is what we did.
