DRUGS, LIFE AND YOU
Drugs, Life and You aims to help young people to develop life skills that will equip them as they navigate the increasingly complex world in which they are growing up.
The programme is led by Hope UK youth workers. Each of the eight sessions involves games, discussions and other activities.
In summary, the sessions are:
to enable learners to get to know each other, their facilitators and the ideas behind the programme.
(Managing Peer Pressure) – to enable learners to develop peer-resistance skills.
to enable learners to gain a basic knowledge of drugs and their effects, including the dangers of county lines.
to enable learners to explore issues of self-esteem.
to enable learners to understand what underlies healthy and unhealthy relationships.
to enable learners to develop skills that can build confidence.
to enable learners to be more aware of how they make decisions.
PROTECTIVE BEHAVIOURS & ENDINGS
a look at protective behaviours strategies, plus enabling learners to bring all their learning together and decide what they will carry forward.

COMMENTS FROM OTHER COURSES
‘It wasn’t like learning yet I really felt like we learnt really important stuff’
‘I feel more comfortable spending time on my own now, it’s okay to think about stuff because it helps me work out what to do’
‘I loved practising situations, I had an issue with someone at college and I felt able to deal with it’
‘It was really good – the course didn’t try to hide anything, it told you what you needed to be told. They try to protect you in school – but this course was a very open environment. Other people found it very comfortable to talk openly. The whole approach is very welcoming. Even if you didn’t see the other group members for a whole week, it was easy to get talking.’
