Five Bridges runs programs that directly benefit the local community. Working with local elders in the Ipswich and Brisbane regions, a range of programs have been developed to meet areas of need for Indigenous people and their families, as well as supporting the wider community.

With the success of these programs, Five Bridges is currently expanding its capacity to enable other communities access to these highly successful programs and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families across Australia. If you are interested in partnering with Five Bridges to deliver programs in your community, please contact us here.

Indigenous Alcohol Support Program

The Five Bridges Alcohol Support Program aims to educate and empower our community to ditch the booze, or at least learn to consume alcohol responsibly.

It is important to get support if you or someone you know needs help to manage alcohol use. 

People use alcohol for multiple and complex reasons including to relax, have fun, dull emotional or physical pain, or to get away from problems or difficulties in their life.
