The project Training frontline workers – young people, alcohol and other drugs is part of a broad strategy to support the educational and training needs of frontline workers. The training and support needs of frontline workers not designated as alcohol and other drug workers to enable them to work confidently with young people on illicit drugs is well recognised. This project attempts to meet this need. It was funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing under the National Illicit Drug Strategy (NIDS).
