Nottingham City Public Health is redesigning and recommissioning some of the services within the wider drug and alcohol treatment system, and want to hear your views. This review comes against a backdrop of escalating drugs and alcohol use among both adults and young people. A situation made worse by other factors such as the pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis, which has resulted in a lot of distress in BAME communities, these issues are made worse by problems of stigma and shame, which result in those needing help, either not, getting the help or when they do, it is at a much later stage. At the same time, drug and alcohol services in the City have not been effective in engaging or working with BAME people.
This is a critical once in a generation opportunity to speak up and shape alcohol and drug treatment and recovery services for the underserved ethnic minority communities.
It is therefore important for you as individuals, families and community members to share your thoughts and ideas in the redesigning of future services. We need to ensure the new system takes into consideration the needs of the whole community.
Consultation open 18 July 2022 to 15 August 2022; the survey link: https://www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/engage-nottingham-hub
