About The LEAD Group and Lead Advisory Service (NSW)

The Lead Advisory Service of NSW (LAS NSW) (previously called NSW Community Lead Advisory Service) is managed by The LEAD Group Incorporated and is a project funded (since July 1997) by the NSW Government (previously funded by NSW EPA, June 1996 to June 1997) which provides education and advice to parents and the general public on lead issues. LAS NSW is funded by the Lead Reference Centre, which is itself funded by six NSW Government departments, being NSW EPA, Health Department, WorkCover Authority, Works and Services, Roads and Traffic Authority, and Department of Housing.
