Who are they are what do they do?
Drug and Alcohol Responder
The Public Health Agency (PHA) and the Connections services across N.Ireland recognise the importance of working with those not directly involved in drug and alcohol support or services but who regularly come across people with drug and/or alcohol needs. We know that they – with the right information, training and support – could make a difference by having confidence to ask the right questions and signpost people in the right direction. Our two day, accredited Drug and Alcohol Responder course offers you the training, and more importantly, that confidence, to be able to make a difference!
Responder training course
Responders also have ongoing support from their local Drug and Alcohol Connections team. The team can make Responders aware of opportunities to get involved in local and regional drug and alcohol initiatives taking place in the local area – things like ‘Dry January’ and Northern Ireland Alcohol Awareness Week (third week in June every year).
