Aberdeen City Drugs, Alcohol and BBV Forum

Aberdeen City Drugs, Alcohol and BBV Forum

Record Number: 3630

Email: nhsg.cityadbbvf@nhs.net Website: http://aberdeencityadp.org.uk/


The Aberdeen City Drugs, Alcohol and Blood Borne Virus (BBV) Forum was set up in response to the then Scottish Office Ministerial Drugs Task Force report 'Drugs in Scotland: Meeting the Challenge' (1994). Initially intended to simply be a drugs forum in what was then Grampian Region, it was agreed that the local fora should have a broader base and incorporate alcohol and BBV.

The objectives of the Aberdeen City Drugs, Alcohol and BBV Forum are:

  • to provide a forum for professionals, carers, voluntary and statutory agencies concerned about drugs, alcohol and HIV issues to share information and develop collaborative working towards common goals
  • to identify the training needs of professionals, carers and volunteers and make recommendations to the Aberdeen City Drug Action Team and other appropriate bodies
  • to promote awareness of drugs, alcohol and BBV as priority developments for policy makers and purchasers of services, including the Alcohol Action Team, Drug Action Team and Joint Community Care planning processes, with the main focus on the needs of users and carers to ensure their views are reflected in the policy making process
  • to promote the involvement of the licensed trade and its regulatory bodies
