Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

 
 
UPDATE

 

Our Ashfield Ceremony has been deferred until later in the year - probably October, and we will update Facebook and the website with further information once known.

The Kings Cross ceremony is going ahead on Tuesday 21st July 1pm, at the Lawrence Hargrave Reserve in Kings Cross. If there is bad weather on the day it will be cancelled.

Once known the Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne events will be posted on the website and Facebook.

The Remembrance Ceremonies are very important to FDS and we want to hold them if possible, but we also have to be conscious of the current restrictions.

Important Information

FDS Update regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As FDS is a National organisation, we operate across a number of jurisdictions. 

We work with the information being provided to our workers in each state regarding

re-opening of groups and courses.  Therefore, not all States will re-open at the same time.

As our groups/courses/events re-open, our website will be the most up-to-date source of accurate information. 

In the meantime, we are pushing additional resources towards our 24/7 Support phone line:

24/7 Telephone Line: 1300 368 186

You can call this line anytime for Family support.

An additional option is to visit the FDS:

Website:  https://www.fds.org.au/

Where you will find resources/tools and on-line videos which you will find beneficial.

Family Drug Support Online for Families:  https://www.fdsonline.org.au/

Interactive tool based on a typical Support Group.

We apologise for any inconvenience but assure you that as soon as we are able to, it is our priority to resume our groups and courses on a regular, on-going basis.

We appreciate your patience and wish everyone the very best during this period of uncertainty.

OTHER EVENTS

Remembrance Day
 
 
UPDATE

 

Our Ashfield Ceremony has been deferred until later in the year - probably October, and we will update Facebook and the website with further information once known.

 

The Kings Cross ceremony is going ahead on Tuesday 21st July 1pm, at the Lawrence Hargrave Reserve in Kings Cross. If there is bad weather on the day it will be cancelled.

 

Once known the Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne events will be posted on the website and Facebook.

 

The Remembrance Ceremonies are very important to FDS and we want to hold them if possible, but we also have to be conscious of the current restrictions.
