Welcome to the Alcoholics Anonymous 12 Step Office website.

This website is intended as a resource for A.A. members, particularly those involved or interested in service work.

If you are new to Alcoholics Anonymous and would like information about meetings please go to www.aa.org.au

The Alcoholics Anonymous 12 Step Office is located at 46 Porter St Prahran and we are open seven days a week from 10am to 6pm.

Opening hours may vary depending on the availability of volunteer members so please call ahead first. (03) 9529 5948.

how to best communicate with us
Our office is staffed by volunteer members of Alcoholics Anonymous who will be happy to answer your questions or put you in touch with those who can.

Most of the Steering Committee members have full time work commitments so we usually do the work for our volunteer roles after hours or on the weekends.

Therefore, email is the most effective way to communicate with us and they are directed to Steering Committee Member or Volunteer best suited to your inquiry.

All communications are treated with the same level of care and attention and are answered in the order in which they are received. Our volunteers are committed to respond as soon as possible, usually within two (2) business days.

Please begin this process by selecting one of the choices provided below.

Donate

In keeping with AA’s 7th Tradition of self-support, we only accept contributions from AA members and AA groups declining outside contributions.

where money and spirituality mix
Members celebrate sobriety by giving time, energy and money in support of our 12th Step – carrying the message—the basic service that the AA Fellowship offers. Members assure that group expenses are paid by putting money into the basket passed at each meeting. It is each member’s responsibility to support the services that have been requested by the AA Fellowship, to help facilitate AA’s vital 12th Step. Contributions are made in a spirit of sacrifice, and they honour AA’s code of “love and service.”

Contributions also underscore the spiritual nature of our Fellowship and our mutual love and trust. We have found that these contributions are as important to each member as they are to the service centres supported.

100% of your contributions, personal or group, are allocated to our operating costs of rent, telephone, web, technology, insurance, utilities, mail out and general expenses. This money is essential in enabling us to fulfil our primary purpose, as well as providing group services.
