An exciting project has just started at Leeds University Union (LUU)! ADEC is working closely with LUU to support safer drug use. Matt Port, the Welfare Officer at LUU, is opening up the conversation about student drug use in campus and seeking interventions to improve students’ welfare regarding alcohol and drug use.

The first phase of the project is to better understand drug use on campus. Based on previous experience and research, ADEC has developed a survey that is being distributed among the student population in University of Leeds. The insights obtained from this survey will allow the team to provide tailored and effective interventions throughout campus.

“I’m delighted that we’re finally launching the first phase of this project! A lot of hard work has gone into it and I’m excited to see the outcome. Working with ADEC on this type of work is a first for the Union, and I’m proud to be a part of making sustainable, sensible change.” Matt Port said.

The survey is just the first step of this project, watch this space for updates!
