Australia’s local drug action teams have been increased with 72 new teams being added, bringing the total to 244. A key part of our National Ice Action Strategy this program helps combat alcohol and drug misuse across Australia.

Each team will develop a local community action plan and will be able to apply for extra funding to put their plan into effect.

The plans involve evidence-based activities targeted at local communities and focus on:

  • prevention
  • promotion
  • harm reduction
