The Tutor was a brilliant teacher, made the class enjoyable and I personally got so much from the course. The leaflets and books were so educational and invaluable for a parent. I would recommend this course without a doubt, one of the best delivered courses I’ve been a part of”. Past Participant

Very informative with everyday information, easy to understand, easy to pass on to others. Instructor was excellent, she spoke to us not at us and I always felt I could give my opinion”.  Past Participant

“I feel better informed than I was 6 weeks ago. I feel more confident about talking to my kids about drugs. I feel assured that there’s help out there if it’s needed. Change? Nothing. The programme was very interesting, a bit scary but overall I’m delighted I got a chance to participate. The programme was excellent” Past participant.
