Volunteer recruitment begun in Buckinghamshire last year has resulted in a team of five who are now ready to take drug and alcohol awareness sessions in the country. Contact Deborah Devine at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to book a speaker.
Ann Galbraith is the Project Worker for Southampton, and Poole and Bournemouth. She has recruited four voluntary Drug Educators from Southampton, Poole and Bournemouth, two of whom completed Hope UK’s voluntary Drug Educator Training course. One hopes to complete later this year. As a trained Drug Educator herself, Ann is available to undertake drug awareness sessions with children’s, young people’s and parents’ groups. Contact her at email@example.com if you would like a speaker or are interested in becoming a Drug Educator.
We are hoping to recruit a team in Berkshire not only to work for Hope UK but also to support the school-base drug education work of local charity, ARCADE. Liz Wynyard, whose salary was paid for by the Vodafone World of Difference scheme, spent the equivalent of two months recruiting volunteers in the area.
There are currently 18 trained Drug Educators in other parts of the South East (not including London) available to provide drug awareness sessions in schools and with children’s, youth and parents’ groups. Training can also be provided for youth workers and family workers. If you would like to book a speaker, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
