In addition to the specific focus on drug and alcohol rehabilitation Foundation 61 is engaged in community outreach in the Whittington area. This is based around a weekly lunch offered to anyone from the Whittington community and approximately 60 people attend each Monday during school term. This contact with the community leads to other opportunities to support individuals.
Weekly food hampers are distributed to Individuals and families in need. This is done either through referral or through our community partner 3216 Connect Op Shop.
Another component of our community outreach is community education. Foundation 61 endeavours to respond positively to all invitations to help raise awareness and educate citizens about both the dangers of illicit drug use and the pathways to help for those who are addicted. Workshops and seminars are provided to churches, secondary schools and other community organisations.
