East Renfrewshire alcohol and drugs plan 2020 to 2023
A new plan to reduce alcohol and drug related harm in East Renfrewshire has been developed by the local Alcohol and Drugs Partnership and approved by the East Renfrewshire Integration Joint Board. Over the next 3 years, partners will work together to deliver the actions in the plan. Many of our actions involve working closely with people with lived experience and the wider community to understand needs and inform how we deliver the planned actions.
A small Lived Experience Panel has been set up in East Renfrewshire, bringing people with experience of alcohol and drug issues together to identify local priorities and suggest improvements to services.
