The Cork Local & Southern Regional Drug & Alcohol Task Force has responsibility for developing a strategic, locally based response to substance misuse in Cork City, Co. Cork and Kerry. Today, the Cork Local & Southern Regional Drug & Alcohol Task Force funds 47 projects. These projects are spread across local communities and voluntary agencies throughout the region to support individuals affected by substance misuse. All Drug Task Forces now have the responsibility of Alcohol added to their brief. We in the Task Force are highlighting this addition of alcohol by creating an event to support the “Hello Sunday Morning” initiative.

“Hello Sunday Morning” encourages individuals to look at changing the pattern of their drinking by taking a break from alcohol & incentivizing that break with goals e.g taking up running/exercise – further details

We are also aiming to highlight to the general public all the services available across Cork City, the County & Kerry regarding substance misuse as part of our drug & alcohol awareness month...
