Changing Lives

The Forum exists to give all individuals an opportunity to voice their opinions on the services that they receive. The BADSUF Community Support Worker achieves this through regular visits to Treatment Providers.

The Forum is represented at a large number of Management and Committee Meetings to ensure that individuals views are heard.

The Forum also offers an Independent Advocacy Service.

The Forum also seeks to keep up to date with all local and national information relating to the provision of alcohol and drug services.
