New National Peak Body Working Group

February 2015

A working group, which includes representatives from the state and territory non-government peak AOD bodies, the three national research centres (represented by Professor Ann Roche, NCETA), the Australasian Therapeutic Communities Association (ATCA), and Social Research and Evaluation has been formed to prepare a proposal and recommendations for the development of a new national peak AOD body. In preparing its proposal, the Working Group will conduct an online survey and will liaise with individual key stakeholders in the AOD and broader health sectors to identity the best model, purpose, constituency and processes for a new national peak body. It is anticipated that the Working Group will finalise its proposal in April/May 2015.
