Penington Institute is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us fulfil our mission of better managing drugs to improve community health and safety.

We undertake a diverse array of projects, including:

  • International Overdose Awareness Day – the world’s largest annual campaign to end overdose, remember those who have died without stigma and acknowledge the grief of the family and friends left behind.
  • Australia’s Annual Overdose Report – the nation’s most comprehensive and reliable source of information about unintentional overdose deaths.
  • The Bulletin – Australia’s only specialty publication for the frontline needle and syringe program (NSP workforce).
  • YEAH – Penington Institute’s campaign national youth initiative on sexual health, alcohol and drug use.
  • Policy submissions – we are constantly leading from the front by submitting high-quality submissions to major Parliamentary and Government inquiries.

Whatever your background or interest, we need you!
