HESTA Community Sector Award
Organisation Winner 2013
The Australian Drug Foundation was awarded the prestigious Organisation HESTA Community Sector Award at a gala dinner as part of the ACOSS National Conference in Adelaide on 25 March 2013. We were awarded in recognition of the achievements of the Good Sports program for our work to make community sporting clubs healthier, safer and more family-friendly.
In accepting this award we would like to acknowledge the community sector for the role it plays supporting people affected by drug and alcohol related problems, their children and loved ones. We believe supporting the prevention focused work of the community sector is vital and would like to thank the sponsors of these awards including ME Bank, Hesta and ACOSS.
We will use the $10,000 prize money to continue to support clubs through our own national awards program as well as to provide more Responsible Service of Alcohol training.
