Bridges in a nutshell  

Bridges works to connect and strengthen individuals, families and communities. At the same time we address challenges facing our communities. In particular we work to prevent and reduce harm related to alcohol and other drug use.


Bridges uses The Bridges Network Approach which is a Social Innovation.

Our activities include, alcohol and other drug family counselling, groups, training, community projects and events, outreach and network development.


While Bridges services are mainly provided in Blacktown Local Government Area, The Bridges Network Approach can also be expanded and applied to address other social issues anywhere around the world.

The Bridges Network Approach Report

The Bridges Network Approach :

strengthening relationships, resilience and systems

to address drug-related harm and other challenges

our families and communities are facing" 






This report covers more than a decade of collaborative work in the development and implementation of this approach to effect change at family, community and sector levels.

 It describes the power and potential of a small community organisation and its partners (large and small) to make a big difference.

It also describes the challenges of undertaking this long-term strategy while operating on short-term funding.


The report includes forewords by Dr Peter Shergold, our patron, and Dr Catherine Spooner, co-author of " The Social Determinants of Drug  Use".
