As described in the Prevention services for substance misuse section, Young Hackney’s Substance Misuse Service offers services to Hackney and City young people at Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 – work to reduce risks and vulnerabilities is offered at Tier 2. As mentioned, in quarter one (Q1) of 2016/17, around half (54 out of 110) of the young people that the service worked with were accessing Tier 1 and Tier 2 services.

The service offers training for professionals and work with schools and universal practitioners, close work with Youth Justice and a range of community groups around screening, identification, referral and treatment.
