National Substance Misuse Grant Funding Update - Final

This report updates the Adult Social Care and Public Health Committee on the progress in the delivery of three grant allocations from central Government to tackle drug-related harms as part of the National Drug Strategy (2021).


These are:


- The ADDER (Addiction, Diversion, Disruption, Enforcement and Recovery) Programme

- Inpatient Detox funding

- The Individual Placement Support (IPS) programme (an employment support programme).


The report briefs the committee on the continuation of the Inpatient Detox, and IPS programmes and confirmed funding allocations for 2023/24, and the replacement of the ADDER grant with the Supplementary Substance Misuse Treatment and Recovery grant (SSMTR) for 2023/24 and 2024/25. In addition, under the National Drugs Strategy local areas have been mandated to establish Combatting Drugs Partnerships to oversee and co-ordinate local delivery of the national strategy.


The report updates the committee on the successful establishment of the Wirral Combatting Drugs Partnership and provides an update on the work underway to produce a drug strategy for Wirral, which will shape future work to reduce drug-related harms
