About Us

 

about-1
Local Drug Action Groups (LDAGs) were established in 1996 as part of a government initiative predicated on the belief that an important part of an overall response to addressing alcohol and other drug issues was to work from within the community. Local Drug Action Groups Incorporated (LDAG Inc) works in partnership with the Government of Western Australia.

LDAG Inc is a not for profit organisation which is directed by a board of management consisting of ten representatives from both regional and metropolitan-based LDAGs.

LDAGs provide an opportunity for people to actively participate in their local community. Made up of volunteers, LDAGs combine to take action to reduce prevent and reduce alcohol and other drug related harm.

LDAGs are a Statewide network of individual communities, working together to make a difference at a grassroots level. Currently there are over 60 LDAGs operating throughout Western Australia.

Our vision is to bring together members of the community who, on a voluntary basis, combine to undertake a range of activities to prevent and reduce drug related harm in their local communities.

Local Drug Action Groups Inc believes that success comes from empowering our volunteers with the skills and confidence to address the needs of their community.

Core Values
