There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in - Desmond Tutu

a national charity creating social impact & connections in the outback - by showing mates it's ''OK2SAYNO'' to a beer.


... we are achieving massive shifts in social inclusion & social impact through  simple & honest yarns among  mates ... 

.... our website will give you access to buckets of information; but really, the nuts and bolts of what SITC as a national charity (and myself as a national speaker and educator) aims to achieve is social impact via broadscale independent grassroots alcohol awareness in ''real'' talk. We've created a safe, friendly, inclusive online rural community for those of us wanting to cut back or quit booze to connect & chat; and above that, we are driving critical awareness and change across how we speak about and treat addictions in the rural space among those who provide food & fibre to the rest of the nation. This conversation is, now, in the face of COVID-19 literally more important than it has ever been. I am now calling publicly upon our ministers to acknowledge and respond to the enormity of the elephant in the room.
