Members of the public are being invited to attend drop-in sessions aimed at promoting the ‘Choose Life’ message to peers and parents.

Following joint meetings with Police Scotland and The Highland Council secondary school Head Teachers, the Police Scotland Inverness Community Beats team in partnership with ‘Choices for Life’ will be holding informal drop in sessions aimed at parents, carers and young people to provide information in relation to drugs, alcohol and online safety.

  • Thursday 2nd March 2017 : 10am -2pm at UHI Campus, Inverness; and 3-7pm at Eastgate Shopping Centre, Inverness.

The events will allow parents, carers and young people to ask questions and gain information such as:

  • What do drugs look like and what effects do they have?
  • How can drugs and alcohol affect you /your child’s future?
  • Why is internet safety important?

The events are open to all parents, carers and young people in the Highland region regardless of school catchment areas. The events will be supported and attended by Highland Secondary schools, Police Scotland, Highland Alcohol and Drug Partnership, Youth Action Service and Crimestoppers.
