- Enable both mainstream and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service providers and health agencies to better target their response to Indigenous client’s needs
- Provide Community Worker with support that will enable them to address the alcohol and other drug issues that affect their Indigenous clients in urban,regional and rural areas
- Ensure its sustainability by encouraging the uptake of the IRIS tool through the provision of training and ongoing support to workers and agencies from health, community control, correction, government and non-government sectors
