30 years of SDF’s work in the drugs field commemorated in new Annual Report 2015-16

Our Annual Report for 2015-16 has been published and is available to view online. This includes highlights from the year’s work, as well as a look at the history of problem drug use in Scotland over the last thirty years and Scottish Drugs Forum’s contribution to the response to the challenges that have arisen.

The report explores the variety of expertise that we have at SDF and which we encourage stakeholders to engage with –  from user involvement in local areas, to the Addiction Worker Training Project (AWTP), responses to bacterial and viral infection, the National Naloxone Programme, sexual and reproductive health, workforce development and much more..

To put the key milestones SDF, and the wider drugs field in Scotland, have achieved in the past thirty years into context, we have created a helpful timeline in the centre of the document which can be printed and kept for future reference.

SDF’s Chief Executive Officer, David Liddell, comments:

“In the last year we have been reflecting somewhat on the thirty year history of Scottish Drugs Forum and drawing some learning in terms of planning for the future.

“Our annual report can only give you a snapshot of some of our activity; I hope that it inspires you to seek new ways to work together.”

Our annual report is also an opportunity to thank the SDF staff, volunteers and Board for their hard work and commitment, as well as thank our funders for their contributions, and all the partners we have been fortunate enough to work with over the past year.

We hope you enjoy reading it.
