Supporting children, young people and families affected by drugs


27/01/2021 09:30







As part of our organisational response to the COVID-19 virus, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.

Our webinar programme can be found here and will be updated regularly.

We may be running some of our scheduled events as abbreviated webinar versions, while others have to be cancelled or postponed until face-to-face training is possible again. Please keep an eye on our website, social media channels and Eventbrite page for updates.

If you've already booked onto any face-to-face training between now and later this year, please note that our Learning and Events team will be in touch with you should the arrangements change.

Our office is currently closed and staff will be working from home – you can contact the team using this email:

About this event

This conference will focus on children and young people and their relationship with drugs. We are currently facing a drug crisis, statistics from National Records of Scotland show that the number of drug-related deaths increased by 27% in 2018 to reach 1,187 – this is the largest number ever recorded and more than double the number recorded a decade ago.
This day of learning will explore recent trends in drug use in Scotland in conjunction with the services and strategies used to support practitioners working with children and young people.  The day will explore best practice in prevention, early intervention, harm reduction and recovery.


Speakers & trainers

We work with more than 100 speakers and trainers to create our diverse programme.
