Parental Drug Awareness Workshops - now taking bookings for Autumn 2018 – Spring 2019
Worried that children know more about drugs than you do?
Choices about drugs and alcohol might be made much earlier then many parents / carers realise, with some children exposed before they leave primary school. Whilst schools provide drug education for pupils, HCC builds on this by offering Parental Drug and Alcohol Awareness Workshops to help families carry on learning together at home.
Adapted to be age appropriate, the content for primary and secondary school workshops is different but both offer useful information about a range of drugs, alcohol and the law, as well as suggesting tips for positive conversations at home that encourage children to keep healthy and safe.
Adapted to be age appropriate for primary and secondary schools the workshop now provides information and raises awareness about the risks of:
Other topics, including cocaine and staying safe at summer music festivals, can be negotiated at the time of booking to make it responsive to current issues as they arise.
‘Every school should offer this to parents, it should be in every school every year.’ (Parent - Ashlyns School)
‘Before this I knew nothing about drugs – they are not part of my culture. Now I do.’ (Parent - St. Margaret Clitherow Roman Catholic Primary School)
‘I thought I was the only one worrying about this. It was great to talk to other parents and know I wasn’t alone.’ (Parent – Broxbourne School)
‘I’ve been worrying about how to talk about alcohol, especially now in Year 10 when they are starting to go to parties. I feel more confident, thank you.’ (Foster Carer - The Beaumont School)
