IFDS Day 2020 - Commonwealth Funding - 24 Feb 2020


24 February 2020

International Family Drug Support Day 2020
Families Welcome Significant Announcement by the Australian Government

In the 20 years Family Drug Support has been supporting families dealing with alcohol and other drugs we have had many ups and downs. 

Today has been an excellent day thanks to the announcement from the Health Minister, the Hon Greg Hunt, announcing funding to allow FDS to continue our national toll-free telephone support line for families. 

The funding will enable FDS to recruit and train volunteers in all jurisdictions. The national number - 1300 368 186 currently receives over 25,000 calls each year from families dealing with drug and alcohol issues and are answered by our trained and dedicated volunteers.
