Since 2016, YHNE have been working and consulting with young homeless people in the North East about what effect New Psychoactive Substances (NPS –Former ‘Legal Highs’) have had on their lives and what affect the ban, introduced in May 2016, has had on their use and supply.
We have been working with young people to co-produce an awareness raising session to deliver to young people and professionals across the North East.
We are pleased to be running the following FREE session in your area:
Friday 22nd June 2018, 1pm - 3pm, Youth Focus North East, Craft Centre, 57 Gilkes Street, Middlesbrough, TS1 5EL
The session will cover the following:
Overview of the NPS Project | What are NPS? | Why do young people use substances | Legal Implications | Risks to YP
