Grant Program: Information and Support (ISS) for Family and Friends

The ADF has recently completed a review of information and support offerings for families and friends of people who use AOD.

We explored what information and support is currently available and the range of service offerings and delivery.

We learnt from families and friends who had accessed services about what had worked for them and what the barriers might be for those who haven’t sought help.

And, we identified that there is little published evidence of what works - despite the dedicated work that so many services currently do.

This new ISS Grants Program is designed to demonstrate the impact of that work, or new initiatives, to help build a strong evidence base that will lead to better outcomes for families and friends.

Two new Grant opportunities are available for:

  • Organisations or services that deliver information and/or support to family and friends of people who are using AOD.
  • Organisations or services that deliver information and/or support services that may be modified to directly support family and friends of people who use AOD (e.g., mental health services, etc).
