WANADA is funded by the Western Australian Mental Health Commission (formerly the Drug and Alcohol Office) and the Australian Government Department of Health.
WANADA also receives additional project funding from the Mental Health Commission, the Australian Government Department of Health and Lotterywest. WANADA is grateful for the continued support of our members.
Western Australian Mental Health Commission
WA's Mental Health Commission funds WANADA's Child Care Access and Interpreter Access projects. Both projects make it easier for people to access alcohol and other drug treatment, information and support when they need it.
The Mental Health Commission also funds the WANADA Management Development Program for emerging leaders in the alcohol and other drug sector.
Australian Government Department of Health
The Australian Government Department of Health funds WANADA's Sector Capacity Building Project through the Substance Misuse Service Delivery Grants Fund (SMSDGF). Outcomes include alcohol and other drug services achieving accreditation against the Standard on Culturally Secure Practice (AOD Sector) and more than 40 university student placements in the alcohol and other drug sector.
Lotterywest supported WANADA to fund regional, rural and remote Aboriginal alcohol and other drug workers travel and accommodation costs for the 2016 Aboriginal Alcohol and other Drug Worker Forum and the 2016 Strong Spirit Strong Mind Awards in Perth.
