Building community resilience to drug & alcohol misuse in Finglas and Cabra Communities
We were established by the Irish government in 1997 as a response to the heroin epidemic in Dublin at that time. We are a multi-sectoral interagency partnership whose main function is to develop, implement, and coordinate community-based responses to drug and alcohol use in the Finglas and Cabra areas of Dublin City.
Our Vision: Our vision is of a community where all are working together with belief and confidence to resolve drug issues in a positive manner
Our Mission: To build and maintain an inclusive Task Force that leads a coordinated local drug strategy in the Finglas and Cabra areas
We promote coordination and organize structured contact among our local community, voluntary and statutory sectors aimed at maintaining a local policy focus on the causes and consequences of problem drug use in Finglas and Cabra. This happens via an annual schedule of multi-sector inter-agency meetings involving all relevant statutory, voluntary and community organisations.
We commission community-based services and projects aimed at producing positive treatment, prevention and general good public health outcomes for those living in our catchment who are affected by drug and alcohol use.
