How your support is making a difference

 
 

We’re aiming to tackle alcohol and other drugs in the local community and we couldn’t do this without the support of our volunteers, donors and supporters. Here is how your help is making a difference…

In the last six months we have delivered free alcohol and other drugs awareness sessions to more than 500 local school students.

Educating young people to make sensible decisions

Our new Schools Awareness Programme helps us educate students, teachers and parents on substances and their effects. Because of donations and support we’ve been able to allocate resources that enable us to drive education and knowledge, to help children make sensible decisions and to prevent possible issues with substances in the future

Secondary school children in England are now more likely to have tried drugs than cigarettes, according to NHS Digital's 2016 survey*. The survey found that 24% of 11-15 year-old's had tried recreational drugs at least once in their lives, a 9% rise on the 2014 survey. The survey also found 15% of 11 year-old's have consumed alcohol, and 73% of those aged 15.

Reducing low level crime and preventing re-offending

With your support we are able to work with Police Forces to prevent re-offending and reduce low level crimes related to substance use. We do this by providing Diversion Courses. In the last three years more than 2,500 people have attended a course.

* Feedback from attendees across the UK in the past year
