Eleven trained voluntary Drug Educators are now available to provide drug awareness sessions for children, young people, parents and youth and church workers. One of these volunteers, David Linington (pictured) also acts as the Chairman of Hope UK’s board of Trustees .
Our goal is to support these Drug Educators with a part-time Local Project Worker who will be able to liaise with other voluntary and statutory groups, as well as meeting requests from daytime groups (like schools) during ‘office hours’. Recruiting new Educators, providing training for accredited courses and delivering awareness sessions at times when Educators are not available, calls for 14 hours of staff time per week . First year salary and support costs are approximately £8,000.
