Originally named The Wayside Foundation, Noffs Foundation was founded in 1970 by the great Australian humanitarian, Reverend Ted Noffs and his wife Margaret Noffs. The primary focus of Noffs services is socially disadvantaged and disconnected young people and those from the Indigenous community as well as those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Our particular expertise is in the treatment of young people with drug and alcohol problems and in particular those with comorbid mental health issues. While focused on young people, Noffs involves the entire community by organising and promoting events to create shared experiences, open pathways for communication and enhance the sense of social inclusion.
