What We Do
NICDATF is committed to sustaining a very broad and balanced spread of local supports for a wide range of issues linked to problem drug use
NICDATF, at the beginning of 2019 has 15 members from statutory, voluntary, community & public elected sector and 3 staff to co-ordinate local responses linked to the National Drug Strategy. Through 21 projects, over 25 project actions are delivered by 30 staff, CE participants and volunteers. These projects work with NICDATF co-ordination, under the pillars of Supply Reduction, Prevention/Education, Treatment, Rehabilitation, Research, Community and Family, and are supported through a variety of sub-groups, committees and networks. More than 30 National Drugs Strategy actions are addressed through NICDATF projects.
NICDATF is committed to sustaining a very broad and balanced spread of local supports for a wide range of issues linked to problem drug use.
NICDATF is committed to integrating prevention, education, treatment, rehabilitation and justice policies through local initiatives that are inclusive of the community, including drug users and their families. By co-ordination, gathering information, providing assessment and analysis we aim to provide support for local project development and respond to changing needs.
NICDATF and supported projects directly assisted over 10,000 people of all ages; children, youth, adults and older persons throughout the community over the last year. A range of relevant information relating to drugs and associated risks was provided to over 50,000 individuals locally, regionally and nationally.
