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.
To help address the short- and long-term effects of alcohol use, FARE has launched Ripple, a project that supports women aged 40-65 in the ACT to reduce the amount of alcohol they drink.
FARE is an informed media source and a well-respected voice on the global science relating to alcohol and its impact on society.
If you are a journalist seeking media spokespeople or information please do not hesitate to contact us. FARE can provide expert comment on a wide range of alcohol-related issues.
