The Dalgarno Institute is one of the longest standing Not-for-Profit community-based, public interest, health education charities in Australia. Demand Reduction, Primary Prevention & Recovery Alumni are our Focus
As an Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) Education – Advocacy and Resourcing Coalition, we are consistently working to make our communities and their families, safer, healthier, stronger, and subsequentially more resilient.
“Resilient communities don’t use drugs – Resilient families don’t want them!”
People power remains one of the greatest forces for change, even in our incredibly manipulated market driven culture. Yes, it's true that social media can and does sway the public perception, but it is people, good people, that care enough to put themselves 'out there' that make real a difference community life. One reason is that they realize for humanity to thrive, it needs support, education and understanding in making best-practice decisions on health and wellbeing.
The Dalgarno institute is made up of just such people.
Over the past 150 years and beyond, the Institute and its heritage have seen the collaboration of individuals, local government, community groups, service clubs, as well as religious and non-religious associations, come together to make our nation a stronger, safer, and healthier place. That committment and action continues today.
