Nick consults ex-users in research on substance misuse

February 11, 2009

nick-visits-stumpedLib Dem parliamentary candidate for Hastings & Rye, Nick Perry, visited local charity Stumped on Monday to speak with volunteers who are themselves ex-users.

Nick made the visit as part of his research on the current combination of services available to people with drug and alcohol addictions in Hastings and Rother.

Speaking after the visit Nick said,

“I am very grateful to the staff and volunteers who spared time to talk to me of their experience.

“It is clear that there is great motivation and determination for ex-users to be as involved as possible in the development and delivery of aftercare services for other ex-users locally. They have an enormous amount of expertise to share.

“I hope that my own efforts on these issues will play a small part in helping to promote an holistic, ongoing conversation between all the key agencies that provide services for this vulnerable client group.”
