THE TED NOFFS FOUNDATION (NOFFS) IS AUSTRALIA’S LARGEST PROVIDER OF DRUG TREATMENT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE.

Originally named The Wayside Foundation, Noffs was established in 1970 by the great Australian humanitarian, Reverend Ted Noffs, and renamed in 1992 to honour his life’s work. Noffs’ services focus on helping young people with drug, crime and mental health issues and have achieved significant success in reducing all three.

THE “RAMP” DESCRIBES OUR APPROACH TO TREATING DRUGS AND YOUTH CRIME.

Developed by Noffs and our research partners at UNSW, the “ramp” diagram depicts the journey of a young person’s struggle with drugs and crime. The left side of the ramp is where a young person is before they begin experiencing issues. Most of our work occurs in the ramp itself but can continue for up to 5 years after.
