Closed 23 Aug 2022

Opened 4 Jul 2022


Project ADDER is a Government initiative to help the police, local authorities, health, and other partners work together to reduce drug-related deaths, offending and the prevalence of drug use. 

The ADDER funding awarded to Hastings will help to reduce the supply of drugs, increase the number of drug users using treatment and recovery services, and reduce drug-related reoffending.
