There is much that a local church can do to engage with drug and alcohol issues in the community as part of its social action programme.  Prevention often has a lower priority than helping people with problems and yet it remains true that ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’.

I am a youth worker…

Hope UK offers a variety of options for those doing voluntary or paid youth work – all designed to help them include alcohol and drug prevention work within their programme. Drug Educators can provide interactive presentations for young people and adults. Our preference, however, is to train youth leaders to do their own drug awareness work throughout the year. Special sessions with young people by a Hope UK Drug Educator can then be part of an overall drug prevention strategy.

Hope UK’s voluntary Drug Educators are trained to a high standard with a 120-hour course accredited with the Open College Network.  They can visit schools to provide interactive alcohol and drug awareness sessions with the flexibility to ensure that they fit within a school’s drug syllabus and policy.

Parents are often unsure about what to do to prevent the harm related to drinking, smoking or illegal drug use. Hope UK’s resources will help dispel myths and provide strategies which parents can use as their children grow up.

Our eight voluntary Drug Educators in South West Wales carry out many drug awareness sessions, especially in local schools.  They include John and Pat Hannigan, a remarkable couple who, despite age and disability accomplish a great deal in the cause of drug prevention.  John says, “I use the knowledge that I receive from Hope UK to help families with children that have life-controlling problems, taking it into schools and anywhere else there is a need for drug education.”
