A new strategy is being developed to support people with drug and alcohol dependency in Bristol, and limit the impact of addiction on lives and communities across the city.
A draft strategy is now ready, which Bristol City Council is asking for feedback on. It has been developed on behalf of the Keeping Communities Safe Group, with key partners Avon and Somerset Police, the Police and Crime Commissioner, and Bristol North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) Clinical Commissioning Group.
The strategy is informed by the ambitions and challenges set out in Bristol’s One City Plan and Bristol’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The vision and priorities for the strategy have been developed through a series of engagement events with key stakeholders across the city.
Bristol City Council have launched a public consultation, asking Bristol residents and businesses to share their views on the draft Bristol’s Drug and Alcohol Strategy 2020-24.
Any comments received from the consultation will be considered before a final strategy is published.
The consultation closes on 8 January 2021, and can be found here: https://bristol.citizenspace.com/public-health/drug-and-alcohol-strategy-consultation
