Bridging the Gap Between Underrepresented Groups and Lewisham’s Drug and Alcohol Treatment Services

Lewisham Council is seeking to commission at least 5 organisations across Lewisham, to help us understand how the communities they work with are impacted by drugs and alcohol. How the treatment system can better reach those communities, and what else can be done to help support those communities. We are seeking to commission at least 5 organisations across Lewisham up to £20,000 each to engage with underrepresented groups.

Open Until: 02/09/2024

Posted: 26/06/2024

Our Substance Use Needs Assessment informed there is significant under representation of groups in Lewisham’s drug and alcohol treatment service.
Underrepresented groups are listed below:
• Asian
• South Asian & Chinese
• Back British, African & Caribbean
• Mixed backgrounds
• Women
• Parents & carers
• Young people under the age of 18
• Refugees & migrant communities
We welcome proposals from organisations that work with people from Lewisham’s diverse backgrounds, including but not limited to those listed above and any other groups who are struggling to access drug and alcohol treatment.

"Just to say a huge thanks ... I am looking forward to progressing with this project thanks to your support, advice and guidance"
