SITC is a grassroots charity creating social impact across Australia by making it #OK2SAYNO to beers in the bush and catching our mates before they fall through the cracks and hurdles of overcoming addiction in isolation.


Our charity is grassroots, independent, and fiercely dedicated to those it exists for. Our current primary purpose is broad scale advocacy & education via 'real talk' from a bush perspective - along with the provision of a members-only peer support network called The Bush Tribe.''
