Course Content

Drugs and alcohol awareness workshop for parents: The world for pre-teens and teens is a very different place when it comes to drugs and alcohol than it was for their parents’ generation, and very few will reach the end of their school and college years without having to make a decision about drugs. This 1.5 hour workshop will explore the issues they face and how their parents and carers can support them to make these choices as safely as they can.

Who is this course for?

Parents and carers of children at Hoe Valley Secondary School
