Another four Local Drug Action Teams are being set up in the capital, to help tackle the ice problem.

The Coalition Government’s providing $10,000 to the teams to develop Community Action Plans.

Those groups can then apply for more funding to help deliver other local projects, with support from the Alcohol and Drug Foundation.


“The teams will deliver local health prevention activities, including education, mentoring and support for vulnerable people to minimise their risk of alcohol and other drug related harms,” ACT Liberal Senator, Zed Seselja, said.

“This is why the roll-out of our own Local Drug Action Team will be important for the strength, health and well-being of our community now, and into the future.”
