About Us

We were established by government in 1997 as a response to the then heroin epidemic in Dublin. We are a multi-agency partnership whose main function is to develop, implement and coordinate community based responses to polydrug and alcohol misuse in the Finglas and Cabra areas of Dublin City.

Our Vision: Our vision is of a community where all are working together with belief and confidence to resolve drug issues in a positive manner

Our Mission: To build and maintain an inclusive Task Force that leads a coordinated local drug strategy in the Finglas and Cabra areas

What We Do?

We coordinate and organise structured contact between the local community, voluntary and statutory sectors so as to maintain a local policy focus on the causes and consequences of drug use in Finglas and Cabra. This happens via an annual schedule of multi-sectoral meetings involving all relevant statutory, voluntary and community organisations.

We commission community based services and projects aimed at producing positive treatment, prevention and public health outcomes for those living in our catchment area who are affected by drug and alcohol use.
