ACT Health Directorate


This project documented the partnership approach adopted in relation to three projects funded by ACT Health in 2004-2005 under the Strengthening Families measure. The 'Strengthening and Supporting Families Coping with Illicit Drug Use' measure was part of the Council of Australian Government's National Illicit Drug Strategy.

The report was based on consultations held with the four agencies involved (the three funded organisations and ACT Health) and focused on what was been learnt from the partnership approach adopted, to provide a foundation for future work.
