Powys Drugs and Alcohol Centres (PDAC) is a long established local charitable organisation which was formed to provide a wide range of support for individuals living in Powys who are dependant on drugs, alcohol or other substances.
PDAC are offering financial support to Powys based voluntary organisations and community groups which provide - or aim to provide - activities which complement our objectives through initiatives which:
- support individuals (and their families) resident in Powys who are directly affected by alcohol or substance misuse or
- provide preventative or diversionary activity or
- raise public awareness of the issues around drug and alcohol misuse
Interested organisations (which we would expect to be registered charities or appropriately constituted groups) should contact the PDAC Company Secretary in the first instance for further details about how to apply for financial support; which is expected to amount to a maximum of £5,000 per organisation.
Contact details are: Richard Jones – Company Secretary, PDAC
THE ROLF GERSTAD MEMORIAL FUND
The Rolf Gerstad Memorial Fund was established by Powys Probation Service in the late 1990’s in memory of Rolf who was PDAC’s first outreach worker. Rolf worked throughout south Powys and demonstrated the value of an outreach approach in supporting those at risk from substance misuse and their families.
The Fund is now managed by the Trustees of PDAC.
The Fund supports individuals to enable them to undertake activities that may assist them in their recovery from substance misuse and help to improve their lives.
