Scottish Drugs Forum is hosting Scotland’s first National Emerging Practice Event.  This event will showcase new and innovative practice from services across Scotland and offer an opportunity for delegates to not only hear about cutting edge practice but to network and discuss the implications and lessons for commissioners, service managers and service providers.

Scotland’s National Mission to reduce drug-related deaths and improve lives is a challenge to us all. Clearly change is required to improve services and outcomes… but what works?  Having presented the evidence for what can work, SDF is keen people hear the experience of delivering innovative practice and the learning and reflection of those delivering change.  We have invited services to apply to showcase their work and have selected what we consider to be the most interesting and innovative projects to present at this event.

This event is suitable for all stakeholders working in both policy and practice and to all involved in commissioning, planning and delivering services to people experiencing drug problems.

Join us to hear from these services who will be showcasing new and innovative practices.
