The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) is the leading not-for-profit organisation working towards an Australia free from alcohol harm. 

With local communities, values-aligned organisations, health professionals and researchers across the country, we strive to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in Australia. 

We develop evidence-informed policy that puts people’s health first, enable people-powered advocacy to help create long-term change, and deliver health promotion programs designed to reduce the risk of alcohol harm in our communities.

Alcohol affects our families and communities every day through injury, violence, chronic diseases like cancer, mental ill-health and disabilities like Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Far too many Australians die each year because of alcohol.

But by working together, we can change this.

Our strategic focus

FARE’s 2021-2023 Strategic Plan outlines our focus and goals for the next few years. Through our work, we aim to make sure:

  • decision-makers implement policies that put the lives of Australians first
  • people’s voices are heard by decision-makers in government
  • alcohol companies are accountable for the harm they cause, and
  • Australians engage with honest and accurate information to reduce the risks of alcohol harm.

Our 20 years of impact

FARE is 20! In December 2021, we celebrated our 20th birthday.

We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved together over the past two decades and are so excited for what’s to come.  

From contributing to world-leading research on reducing alcohol harm in Australia and across the world, to building awareness about the risks of drinking alcohol during pregnancy, to holding multi-billion corporations accountable for their harmful actions – we’ve achieved so much together! 

We know these achievements are only made possible through the contributions of the amazing organisations and everyday people who have supported us as we work towards an Australia free from alcohol harm. 

Annual reports

Our annual report for the financial year 2022-23 is now online – and it has been incredible to reflect on what we’ve achieved together this past year.  

We had a clear vision of the impact we wanted to see in our communities.  

We wanted to provide honest and accurate information in our health promotion work and work with decision-makers to implement policies that improve the health and wellbeing of our communities. We also wanted to engage with communities across Australia through people-led advocacy.  

And that is what we did.
