Foróige has a range of specialised drug education and prevention projects based around the country, funded mainly through Local or Regional Drug Task Forces and the Young People’s Facilities and Services Fund through local VECs. Foróige recognises that young people’s active participation in youth work initiatives through clubs, projects and services makes a big contribution to substance misuse prevention
These projects provide education and awareness programmes, information and support directly to young people through one to one or group work interventions using primary and secondary prevention approaches. Education and support services to parents are also provided.
We have revised and updated our Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Policy and Guidelines. These provide a more detailed account of Foróige’s approach to drug education and prevention.
