What we do

Proudly part of the Lions Australia family the Australian Lions Wellbeing Foundation (ALWF) delivers health and wellbeing information to schools and communities across Australia through a range of projects and resources.

Formerly the Australian Lions Drug Awareness Foundation, ALWF aims to help create happier, healthier and safer communities through our range of projects and resources.


From Tune In Not Out, an online youth health portal, to Freedom to Feel Fantastic we have a suite of projects for schools and communities covering topics such as alcohol and other drugs, body image and mental health.


For over 30 years we have provided resources to Lions Clubs, community groups and schools across a range of alcohol and other drugs and wellbeing topics. We now deliver these via online factsheets.


From the internationally renowned Lions Quest program to our Smarter About Drugs drug policy curriculum package we offer a range of resources for schools that wish to educate and promote health and wellbeing.
