FORWAARD aims to minimise substance misuse and dependency amongst Indigenous peoples through delivering culturally appropriate education, prevention and recovery programs.

FORWAARD started in 1967 as a volunteer service for the long grassers of that era. A night shelter, a place to camp and obtain food and a place to dry out was established. In 1978 FORWAARD became incorporated and it has continued to provide valuable services to Territorians to this day.
