#HaveYourSay Consultation on North Yorkshire’s all-age draft substance use strategy.

North Yorkshire Council have drafted an all-age substance use strategy with support from a range of partner organisations working together to reduce the harms associated with substance use.

The public consultation on the draft strategy was launched the 2 February 2024 and will be running until 30 April 2024.

We are interested in hearing from the general public (both adults and young people age 13+) as well as:

  • People with personal experience of substance use
  • People effected by a loved one’s substance use
  • People employed to work in roles that support people who may use substances
  • People from ethnic minority backgrounds
  • People in the military or veterans
  • People who identify as LGBTQ+
  • People who have a disability
  • People with a rural residency
  • People who identify as female

Details of the full strategy, accompanying short video and online survey can be found here:
