Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset Alcohol and Drugs Strategy

A landmark strategy to tackle alcohol and drug use across Dorset was launched in June 2016.

The Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset Alcohol and Drugs Strategy 2016-2020 seeks to improve people’s wellbeing, increase their chances of recovery from substance misuse, and help ensure they are safe.

It brings together agencies involved in dealing with the effects of alcohol and other drugs in Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset to recognise people’s use of substances and promote a balanced relationship with alcohol and drugs, while working to improve life for people and communities affected by substance misuse.

All partners have agreed to the following four principles:

  • Build services around the need of the service user, their families and the wider community
  • Focus on areas of demographic and geographic need
  • Work in partnership to make the best use of all resources in our communities
  • Share appropriate information for the benefit of service design and service user support

The work is led by the Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset Alcohol and Drugs Governance Board, which includes partners such as Public Health Dorset, councils, NHS, Dorset Police, Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue and treatment services.
