Each month, LDAT meets to check in on the progress of the collective for meeting the obligations of their annual plan.  The group are accountable to the Drug and Alcohol Foundation’s funding requirements and have been undertaking projects in the Drug and Alcohol education and awareness space, since first becoming a place based working group in 2018…?? 

Members of LDAT come from community services, education and the Burnie Community House.  There has been an interest in developing and elevating the community voice in this space and in 2020 the group had training in the Platforms method by Paul Prichard which has helped inform the next steps.  In 2021, the Burnie Community House are leading a “Know Your Risk” community workshop series to draw information from people in the community that will make up a new edition of a booklet to be freely distributed to the Burnie community.  The booklet will provide local informed content about the risks of addictive substances and where to get support.
