Last week, the MP for Stockton North Alex Cunningham took the time to drop in and meet the team from Life Skills Education Charity who believe that every child deserves the right to know how to deal with the risks, know the consequences and be able to make informed decisions surrounding risky behaviours.
Alex Cunningham said:
“It was great to see the good work that Life Skills education are delivering to thousands of young people every year. By signing their pledge I am helping to raise awareness of their early intervention drug and alcohol programme in our local community, changing behaviour and enabling young people to make well informed decisions throughout their life.”
Pete Moyes, CEO of Life Skills Education charity, said:
‘The impact of drug and alcohol misuse is a UK wide issue. This issue affects each and every one of us. Early intervention education is proven to be more effective than cure.’
Alex is encouraging teachers to get in touch with Life Skills Education Charity are to see how their programme can be delivered locally.
