Drug awareness project at Charterhouse-in-Southwark

London SE1 website team

Simon Hughes MP this week presented certificates to a group of 15 young people who have completed their training as drug, alcohol and sexual health educators at Charterhouse-in-Southwark.

As trained 'peer educators' the members of the group – the fourth such group to be trained in as many years – are in great demand to visit youth clubs and other places where young people meet to talk about the problems, dangers and issues around drugs and alcohol as well as advising about sexual relationships.  This project run by Charterhouse-in-Southwark is aimed at ensuring that young people can make informed choices about their relationships and lifestyles without succumbing to adverse peer pressure.

"The Drug Awareness project is an invaluable initiative for Southwark" says Simon Hughes. "Its work with young people gives them the necessary information to make informed lifestyle choices for themselves.  I am proud to be associated with the work of the Drug Awareness Project."
