Supporting young people to make safe choices about drugs

Making Safer Choices, our evidence-based drug and alcohol education programme for students and parents, incorporates a spiral curriculum of age-appropriate sessions for students in years 7-8, years 9-11 and sixth form, training for staff and workshops for parents and carers. Everything we do is mapped to an international evidence base of what is most effective in drug and alcohol education, and on European standards of good practice, and is reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis to ensure it’s all current and relevant and addresses the priority issues for young people.
