Drugs and Premises - The Law and Good Practice (one or two day versions)

About the course: This course looks at drugs, drug legislation and drugs work from a worker or an organizational perspective rather than a client perspective. The aim is to ensure that workers are clear about their own legal responsibilities relating to drugs, on premises, during visits and in street settings.

Appropriate for: Workers and managers in a variety of settings including residential settings, tenancy sustainment workers, outreach workers, day-centres, children's homes, and any other setting where drug-related behaviour on premises is likely to be an issue.

The course can be tailored to meet the needs of front-line workers or managers as appropriate.

Course includes:

Format: Taught section, work in pairs and groups, whole group discussion
