Other Resources

This Hunter Homeless Connect Directory is a compilation of current services available to anyone in need. It should be able to help direct people to a suitable service which can then assist to solve needs.

The Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF), in collaboration with NSW Health and local agencies, has produced a suite of resources that will help you educate your communities about crystalline methamphetamine (‘ice’).

These resources cover the effects of the drug on individuals and communities. They also explain where someone can get help if they have a crystalline methamphetamine problem or want to support someone struggling with addiction.
