In 2021 CDATF established a group of local community representatives to re-establish the voice of the community at the heart of the work of CDATF.  Over the past three years the group have met regularly to discuss the issues local people face related to substance use.  In 2022 the group produced a handbook to improve the sustainability of the group and form a basis for the group’s future development.  The handbook is linked for anyone interested in getting involved in the group.
