Barra Stakeholder Session

The Outer Hebrides Alcohol & Drug Partnership (ADP) team held a stakeholder event in Barra on 25thApril which was aimed at all alcohol and drug support services.   In a group workshop, discussions focussed on what services are currently available; what services are needed; what works well and what doesn’t work so well.
