    Bob Tait Drugs & Alcohol Awareness Presentation - Supporting Materials for Parents

    With over 28 years of Royal Naval Service, Bob Tait (DRED UK) worked as an RN Policeman dealing with drug-related issues, including undercover work in Drugs Intelligence. Since 2004 he has worked with young drug users, young offenders and school pupils, giving powerful and well-informed presentations.

    In his talks given to Pocklington parents, teachers and students, Bob raised awareness of the risks and prevalence of misuse, including key information about drugs, solvents, tobacco and alcohol. As well as the great deal of practical information Bob gave us, the key message from the talks focused on the importance of a healthy dialogue between children, parents and staff. We hope that the information below proves informative and a useful basis for discussion.
