NADA policy toolkit working group: expressions of interest are open


NADA’s Policy Toolkit provides AOD NGOs in NSW with a wealth of evidence-informed policy templates to support organisational governance. It is one of the most downloaded resources on the NADA website, which speaks to its reach and impact in shaping the work of AOD NGOs.

The Policy Toolkit is currently undergoing review, and we need your help to make it the best it can be! NADA is currently seeking expressions of interest from NADA staff, members and NGO stakeholders to be involved in a working group to update the toolkit.

The purpose of the working group is to:

  • ensure the toolkit has current policy templates that meet the needs of AOD NGOs, including in relation to areas intersecting with AOD support (for instance, homelessness, domestic and family violence, and mental health)
  • collaborate with NADA staff, members, and stakeholders to test whether it is feasible to implement the proposed toolkit changes in member organisations.

What’s in it for you?

  • Expanding your skill set, including through professional development opportunities in policy development
  • Contributing to diverse and inclusive practice
  • Becoming aware of current legal and compliance requirements applicable to your organisation
  • Contributing to a resource that shapes clinical practice in AOD NGOs
  • Expanding your networks, including in AOD and across sectors

We aim to recruit working group members from varying levels of organisations (for instance, managers, clinicians, and/or administrative staff) who either work in AOD, or a field that intersects with AOD service provision (such as mental health or homelessness). Contact Hannah if you are interested in this exciting opportunity, or you would like to know more. The working group  will commence in early 2022, though you are encouraged to submit an EOI to join after this point if you are interested, as new people joining throughout the first half of 2022 is welcomed. An individual introduction to the group and its work will be organised for these people.
