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.
There is growing concern about the impact of increases in retail alcohol sales during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the influence of largely unregulated alcohol advertising.
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.
