Aims & Objectives of Membership
- Networking: Sharing information and resources at our monthly meetings. In line with our ˇ§Guiding Principlesˇ¨, training programmes, frameworks and different methodologies are critically examined in an effort to share and develop the approaches that are currently employed.
- „« Information exchange: Examining current trends and profiles in all aspects of drug awareness, education and prevention at home and abroad; inviting guest speakers to make presentations on specific topics; sharing information on relevant training courses and conferences.
- Support: Creating a safe environment for those working in the field, that allows for professionals to discuss, in a supportive and confidential setting, particular difficulties or issues that may have arisen for them in the course of their work.
- Lobbying: Assisting with the development of a more integrated response to drug issues and ensuring that representatives from the voluntary, community and statutory drug education sector have an equal opportunity to make regular inputs to national policy. DEWF also enables members to further develop their own voluntary/statutory partnerships
