Signup to Fair Treatment

Join us as we campaign for fair treatment and sensible drug policies by signing up to our mailing list.


We Want Fair Treatment

We all want to live in a world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, including people who use drugs, where we have drug laws informed by best practice and evidence and where treatment is available for all those who seek it. It is time for our political leaders to set aside their ideology, listen to the evidence, and modernise our laws.

Watch “Half a Million Steps” Online

Our documentary “Half a Million Steps” has been shown all over NSW/ACT. Now it is available to view online.

What is Fair Treatment?

Formed by the Uniting Church NSW/ACT and Uniting in 2018, the campaign and now includes more than 70 partner organisations.

We all want to live in a world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, including people who use drugs.

To achieve this, we need increased access to treatment services, especially in rural and regional areas, and introduce a compassionate, health and wellbeing-based response to drug dependency.

Stand with us and together we can make this a reality.

For more information, download our flyer, listen to our episode of the Change Makers Podcast and read our Blueprint.

Check out our Messaging Guide to find out how to have an open and honest conversation and shift stigma about drugs and people who use drugs.
