    Substance misuse among under-18s in the UK is always a cause for concern with stories of teenagers drinking alcohol, smoking cannabis, or using drugs never far from the headlines.

    Drug use is a significant problem because it can affect a young person's health and wellbeing, their education, their family life, their security and their future.

    To help youth workers understand this complex issue, VolTrain have arranged a FREE training evening in Bristol led by

    BDP

    (Bristol Drugs Project) who will lead an introductory session on drug and alcohol awareness for youth leaders/volunteers working in secular and faith-based settings.
