Empty plates at ‘Meet & Eat!’ last Friday

DSC_0079Friday 21st March 2014 saw the first ‘Meet & Eat!’ networking event, organised by Warwickshire’s Drug & Alcohol Action Team and Compass Warwickshire young person’s substance misuse service.

The event was organised as a networking opportunity for people working in, or interested in, young person’s substance misuse, and took place at Coventry TechnoCentre between 12:00 and 14:00.

Over 90 delegates attended and had the chance to meet 24 exhibitors representing organisations concerned with substance misuse in some capacity including:


Blue Sky Centre


Victim Support and


Tony Farquharson, service manager at Compass Warwickshire, gave a brief presentation about the service and delivery in Warwickshire.

The Drug & Alcohol Action Team has had good feedback from representatives including Warwickshire Fire & Rescue Service and Bromford Support – we have been told the lunch was pretty good too!

If you would like to provide feedback to help us improve future ‘Meet & Eat!’ events, please email, or call 01926 412261. As this was the first event organised by the team we welcome your views.
