Spice Ban One Year On – Unhappy Anniversary? 13th July 2017
Just over a year ago, Legal Highs – novel psychoactive substances commonly known as Spice were banned. Exploring the effect of this change as well providing background and context created a lively discussion amongst the many attendants of a recent event.
The event which was put on by the Social Care Partnership Network in conjunction with Lifeshare, brought together over 50 colleagues from Social Services, schools, colleges, the NHS as well as many third sector social care practitioners. Through informal, interactive workshops and debate, expert knowledge was shared and practice experience discussed.
Participants welcomed the opportunity to dispel some popular myths and most importantly learn how to best work with those in their care who have taken Spice.
Feedback from the day was extremely positive with everyone welcoming the opportunity to learn together and network in a relaxed and supportive environment. Attendees reported feeling an increased level of confidence in their knowledge.
The Social Care Partnership Network regularly brings together placement partners of Manchester Metropolitan giving them the opportunity to gain insight into each other’s work and share their experiential knowledge in a neutral space.
