Goals and objectives

SDERA helps children and young people make smarter choices by providing a resilience approach to road safety and alcohol and other drugs education. We support school staff, early childhood educators and community agencies with professional learning, resources and state-wide consultancy.

SDERA provides a research based, best practice service that gives confidence to early childhood services, schools and agencies that they are using the Western Australia Government’s primary strategy for road safety and drug education.


Strategies undertaken to empower school based staff, parents and the wider community include providing professional development workshops, production and provision of curriculum support resources, developing effective drug and road safety education programs and providing consultancy services to school communities.

SDERA has maintained and continues to grow the network of key stakeholders in resilience, drug and road safety education arenas at local, state and national levels. SDERA has maintained active membership of standing reference groups, taskforces, committees and funding groups in drug education and road safety.
