Have your say about addiction services in Doncaster

We’re asking residents to have their say about our services at a ‘stakeholder’ day on Monday January 29.

Aspire Drug and Alcohol Service is holding the event to give Doncaster people who are affected by drug and alcohol addiction the opportunity to feedback their thoughts to help Aspire to review and develop its services to further meet the needs of local people.

Aspire Service Manager Stuart Green, said: “We want to hear what people think of our services to help us to better understand the impact they have to support the recovery and wellbeing in the Doncaster community.  We hope that local people will register their interest and join us in discussions to help us to review the addiction services we provide so that we continue to meet the current and further needs of the local population.”

The event will involve a mix of group discussions and presentations by guest speakers from within the Doncaster NHS community, including Dr Rupert Suckling, Director of Public Health, Louisa Endersby, Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust, and also Professor David Best, a leading figure in the addiction field, Tim Young, CEO of Alcohol and Drug Services and Stuart Green, Aspire Drug and Alcohol Service.

The stakeholder day is free and is being held between 9.30am to 2.00pm at Rutland House in Doncaster.  People who are interested in attending are asked to register their place at this link https://www.eventbrite.com/e/aspire-stakeholder-event-2018-tickets-40903664963#
