As part of the Western Sydney Illicit Drug Forum,
DRUG ARM was invited to address the parliamentary
committee, chaired by Bronwyn Bishop MP, to
discuss the impact of illicit drug use on families and
individuals in the Western Sydney Area. The Forum
provided DRUG ARM with the invaluable opportunity
to discuss the issues being faced by our clients
in Western Sydney. The Forum also served as a
valuable tool to discuss the valuable services being
offered by DRUG ARM and the positive impacts
that the programs are making to the community.

education and training
In addition to significantly expanding our ongoing work with schools, we increased the number
of university and TAFE students reached with training sessions - important as they are at least
as much risk as school students, and are often neglected as a drug education target.
Skills development and training for the AOD and related sectors, including
parents, was a major focus during 2006-07, increasing the community’s
capacity to deal effectively with local issues. Our own volunteer
training courses were updated to meet changing program needs,
and staff trained for delivery of these. Specialised workshops on
drugs, intoxication and working effectively with young people were
developed and delivered for other organisations including:
•    Tackling Life – a continued collaboration with Mitchelton Rugby
     League Club’s life skills program for school students
•    Riverton Early Parenting Centre
•    Scripture Union trainee Chaplains
•    Bray Park State High Special Education Unit
•    One Tribe Inala Indigenous youth support services
•    Bond University Masters of Education course
•    UQ Foundation College for recently-arrived overseas students
•    Brisbane City Council.
Workplace drug issues were of increasing concern. Information
and training workshops on managing workplace drug
issues were developed for corporate clients including: Rio
Tinto Aluminium, CleanAway Rubbish Removals, Gold
Coast TAFE, Centrelink and Australian Health Management.

ResoURCe CentRe
The Resource Centre is based in Brisbane but supplies information and materials across Australia. An increased
focus on electronic access, document delivery and links with other libraries shows results in the increased use of
journals and professional development materials by staff (including volunteers) and increased external access by allied
professionals, including those from regional and remote areas. Supply of fact sheets and program information to the
public continues, but by providing links to the website and information in electronic format, the RC has reduced its
printing costs. As well external events, displays were developed for the following occasions: International Women’s
Day, Children’s Book Week, Mental Health Week, National Science Week, Drug Action Week and Volunteers Day.

In 2006-07 DRUG ARM records a surplus of $39,239, reflecting the high costs associated with the running of our many
programs and services. This is an increase of 3.26% on 2006 and although DRUG ARM Australasia’s objective is
not to make a significant surplus it is necessary to provide funds for the future development of unfunded programs.
Government grants and community trusts and foundations, alongside fundraising and philanthropic support, continue to
be major income streams, while support from the Drug Awareness and Relief Foundation helps to maintain expenditure.
Total income generated for the 2006-07 financial year was $4,334,738 and total program expenditure was $4,295,499.
