The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I have been involved in the drug field for many years, working with people of all ages, and from all backgrounds and cultures. As we approach this year’s summer holiday period, some young people are finding this even more difficult than in previous years. I am currently supporting thirty families, where there is a problem with Substance Misuse and/or Alcohol Abuse. The children in these families are all under 20. Some of these children will never become adults. The parents are also suffering, along with the grandparents, brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. Please pass on this page's details to anyone who needs support in how to deal with these problems. I spoke recently at a Pupil Referral Unit, The students were aged from 11-14, they are already on a downward spiral. They cannot attend mainstream school, the sad thing is none of them know how to get out of their current situation. Although we are responsible for our actions, some young people get dealt a raw deal before they even start.
