A chance to hear about one of the latest projects at BDP youth which was launched in March 2020. This project aims to support young people and explore the link that regular cannabis use has with serious youth violence and CCE.

This project has overcome challenges posed by COVID 19 and exceeded its initial one to one support targets, reaching a wide range of young people across the city for substance use support . The session will look at some of the specific issues young people in Bristol are facing in terms of CCE, drug trends, available services and how working flexibly and addressing cannabis use is a crucial part of keeping young people engaged and safe. It will demonstrate the benefits of partnership working across youth organisations and networks and offer an insight into how BDP and the New Leaf project contributes to Bristol’s youth violence strategy . You will find out how to access New Leaf for the young people you work with and there will be space for your questions on the project and its work.

This is an online session, you will be sent a link to the meeting room and a password nearer the time.

At the end of the session there is a chance to ask any questions.
