A conversation about drugs and alcohol

Closed 22 Mar 2022

Opened 28 Feb 2022


Anyone can develop a dependence on drugs and alcohol, and it is not just the individual that is affected; families, carers and loved ones can be affected too.

We want to ensure that the projects we commission to support drug and alcohol misuse address local needs by including East Sussex residents in the conversation. In addition to this survey, focus groups will also be carried out with people who use services to ensure they have a voice within this conversation.

By answering these questions you can help us to break down the stigma, support those who need help and ensure your voice is heard.

We will analyse the survey and results and combine them with what we have learned through the focus group to produce a summary that outlines the areas of need we have identified. Organisations and projects will then have the opportunity to submit bids for innovative approaches to meet these needs.
