The Nottingham Crime & Drugs Partnership (CDP) aims to tackle crime, drugs and anti-social behaviour issues within the city of Nottingham.
It is a multi-agency partnership established to address these issues through the formation of strategies and the commissioning of services, and operationally through their implementation.
The CDP is made up of a broad spectrum of statutory and non-statutory partners, including Nottinghamshire Police, Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire PCT, Nottinghamshire Probation, the Youth Offending Team, the Crown Prosecution Service and Victim Support.
Lifeline is a registered Charity with forty years experience of managing drug and alcohol services. Lifeline currently provides a diverse range of services including recovery and peer mentoring, harm minimization, day programmes, prescribing and shared care, community detoxification services, criminal justice and prison initiatives, family work and services for young people.
Lifeline works closely with communities and localities, and produces educative and digital material designed to encourage access to help. We also work to educate professionals in allied sectors and the general public on substance misuse.
The Children’s Society are trailblazers in their work with and for children affected by problematic parental drug or alcohol misuse. In 2002 they set up STARS in Nottingham - one of the first services in the country to work therapeutically with children affected.
Explore Family and the partnership with Lifeline continues and builds upon the work of STARS, which received national and international recognition for its innovative and ground breaking approach. This partnership allows the skills and experiences from an adult service and a children’s service to come together to meet the needs of and improve outcomes for the whole family.
The service is supported through The Children’s Society Stars National Initiative – a hub of information, guidance and resources on parental substance and the impact upon children and families.
