The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) is an independent charitable organisation working to prevent the harmful use of alcohol in Australia.
Our mission is to help Australia change the way it drinks by:
- helping communities to prevent and reduce alcohol-related harms
- building the case for alcohol policy reform
- engaging Australians in conversations about our drinking culture
Over the last 10 years we have invested more than $115 million, helped 750 organisations and funded over 1,400 projects tackling the harms caused by alcohol misuse.
We use population-based policy approaches to support change across Australia. We carefully invest our donated resources in research, community projects and policy development to drive this change.
We raise funds to build the knowledge base about alcohol, to better understand what works, and to support Australian communities as they respond to alcohol misuse.
We are guided by the World Health Organisation’s Global Strategy to Reduce the Harmful Use of Alcohol for tackling alcohol-related harms through population-based strategies, problem directed policies, and direct interventions.
Our values shape the work we do, and the way we work with our colleagues.
