Beat Drugs Fund

Briefings, Workshops & Experience Sharing Sessions

The Beat Drugs Fund (BDF) is inviting applications for the 2021 Funding Exercise of the BDF Regular Funding Exercise (RFS) between 22 July 2021 and 15 September 2021. To enhance public’s understanding of the details of 2021 RFS and the priority areas, as well as its application procedures and assessment criteria, four sessions of Briefing cum Experience Sharing will be organised between late July and early August. At the same time, four grantees will be invited to share their experience in project implementation with the participants after the briefings.

The BDF was established in 1996 to support various types of projects organised by different sectors of the community to combat the problem of drug abuse. Under the RFS, organisations can apply for funding to organise preventive education and publicity programmes targeting the general public and/or specific groups, provide drug treatment and rehabilitation services to people with drug problems, conduct researches on drug abuse problem, or a combination of the above components. We encourage different sectors in the society to propose more anti-drug projects which meet the objectives and assessment criteria of BDF, in order to promote anti-drug works through supporting more worthwhile anti-drug programmes.

The coming four briefing cum experience sharing sessions will be delivered online using Zoom Meeting on July 28 (Wednesday), July 30 (Friday), August 3 (Tuesday) and August 5 (Thursday), between 2:30pm and 6pm. Details can be found at Annex. The four briefing sessions will be conducted mainly in Cantonese. Organisations which require information in English may approach the Secretariat of BDFA direct.

Representatives of interested organisations may complete the online enrolment form (link: https://forms.gle/MQ7RaBPmbW16zuTY7). The participants will be provided with the link and password of the online briefing via email nearer the time.
