Penington Institute: rethinking how communities tackle unsafe drug use.
Penington Institute advances health and community safety by connecting substance use research to practical action.
Launched in 2014, Penington Institute, a not for profit organisation, has grown out of the rich and vibrant work of one of its programs – Anex, and its close to 20 years experience working with people and families directly affected by problematic drug use.
Penington Institute addresses this complex issue with knowledge and compassion. We not only help individuals, but also the wider community through our research analysis, promotion of effective strategies, workforce education and public awareness activities.
In short, Penington Institute saves lives.
Penington Institute is inspired by and named in honour of Emeritus Professor David Penington AC, one of Australia’s leading public intellectuals and health experts.
