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.
The health and wellbeing of our communities will be at risk from increasing alcohol harm if the Victorian Parliament fails to amend the Liquor Control Reform Amendment Bill 2021 later this month.
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.
