What are we doing?

We ensure that the work of local agencies is brought together effectively and that cross-agency projects are co-ordinated successfully. Public Health make strategic decisions on expenditure and service delivery within the three themes of the National Drug Strategy 2010 which are:

  • reducing demand
  • restricting supply
  • building recovery in communities

The first annual review of the National Drug Strategy 2010 was released in May 2012 and can be viewed on the website.

Birmingham also has an Alcohol Strategy (2012 to 2016) to support strategic decisions around expenditure and service delivery around alcohol. We also have a Drugs & Alcohol Needs Assessment

The National Alcohol Strategy can be viewed on the website.
