Description:
The Traveller Drug Network (TDN) was established in 2005 and originally consisted only of Traveller organisations that were dealing with the issue of drug mis-use in their local areas. In 2010, the network was extended to include drug and alcohol support services from around Ireland so information could be shared between services in order to meet service users’ needs effectively. The network provides an opportunity for Traveller organisations to make connections with these support services so the issue of substance mis-use can be addressed in a collaborative nature. The second Traveller Drug Network of 2011 focused on the area of sexuality and the impact this can have on physical, mental and emotional well-being. Research has shown that LGBT young people can experience marginalisation, fear, isolation, bullying, harassment, family and peer rejection, which can then lead to them being more vulnerable to drug & alcohol use.
