2019 Oct 30th Citywide event on the National Drugs Strategy




Why “we should have listened” and why we should still be listening - the value of community participation: Presentation by Anna Quigley

Former Ministers express concern and frustration at failure of Government to honour its commitments to work in partnership with community groups

All of the country’s former Ministers of State with responsibility for the National Drugs Strategy have united together to call on the Government to restore confidence in the National Drugs Strategy in particular because the partnership approach which underpins the Strategy is in danger of collapse.

The statement by the former Ministers was made at an event organised by Citywide.

The statement was signed by all of the former Drugs Ministers between 1996 and 2016 including Pat Rabbitte, Chris Flood, Eoin Ryan, Noel Ahern, Pat Carey, John Curran TD, Róisín Shortall TD, Alex White and Senator Aodhán Ó Ríordáin.
