Riverland Local Drug Action Team

Riverland Local Drug Action Team

The Australian Drug Foundation Local Drug Action Team Program supports communities to work together to prevent and minimise the harm caused by alcohol and other drugs. There are now 244 Local Drug Action Teams across Australia.

The Riverland Local Drug Action Team (LDAT) is led by the three Riverland Councils; Renmark Paringa Council, Berri Barmera Council and District Council of Loxton Waikerie. Local Government is proudly supported by Murraylands Riverland Regional Development Australia (RDA) and community member Chrissy Eleftheriadis in managing the LDAT. Agencies who work in the social sector make up the LDAT committee and contribute to the strategic direction of the group.

A major focus in the 2018/19 years has been towards the Riverland Social Indicators Project. A project coordinated by the three Riverland Councils, RDA and being implemented by FRED consulting group. This project seeks to identify the key issues which are impacting the Riverland region and to develop an advocacy strategy for the region to work cohesively in order to reduce the impact. It is envisaged that this project will be completed by early 2020.
