RESIDENTS are being asked to voice their views on drug and alcohol support services by members of the Public Health team at Coventry City Council.

As part of a wider programme of activity to help combat drug and alcohol related crime, the Council commissions drug and alcohol support services for adults and young people living in the city.

A public survey has been live since Thursday (August 18) and the deadline for feedback has been set as Friday (September 30).

Feedback from residents will be used to help design a new model for future services.

Coun Rois Ali, deputy cabinet member for public health, said: “Issues around drugs and alcohol can cut through every level of our society and impact massively on people’s lives.

“It’s really important that we have services that acknowledge and deal with this effectively and our first step is finding out what our residents currently think.

“This is why I would like to encourage as many people as possible to take some time to fill in their responses and help shape future services.”

In addition to the online survey, the Public Health team will be holding consultation events in early September to give city residents an opportunity to find out more about proposed services.

To receive a copy of the questionnaire, email FMUStrategicSupport@coventry.gov.uk – where you can also register to attend a consultation event.
