Nick meets Hastings District Commander

January 26, 2009

nick-meets-andy-goochNick Perry, Lib Dem parliamentary campaigner for Hastings & Rye, has been meeting with key agencies regarding his call for a debate on the provision of services for people with drug and alcohol problems locally.

He met with Hastings District Commander Andy Gooch to discuss the police perspective on the issue, following recent national news indicating that the recession is already having an effect on acquisitive crime figures.

After the meeting Nick said,

“I was really pleased to meet with Andy and his staff who are working with substance misuse services locally. It was great to hear that there are good channels of communication between the police and the different provider services.

“It seems that one of the most difficult issues at the moment is helping people with addictions problems who are sofa-surfing to get into stable accommodation with the right support in place. This is where services like the Seaview Project come into their own.”

Nick hopes to be able to share the outcome of his research with the local PCT in due course.
