A CHARITY is striving to make more people aware of the dangers of drug and alcohol misuse.

The Drugwatch Trust, supported by Cheshire Constabulary, is running a substance misuse training course for agencies across Cheshire.

The ambassador insight programme awareness training will licence organisations to deliver the programme within their own environment and externally.

It will ensure professionals have access to bespoke presentation material which includes crucial awareness and prevention material.

The two-day course is being held at Cheshire Police HQ in Winsford on Friday, May 2 and Friday, May 9, starting at 9am.

Agencies throughout the county will be represented at the training event.
