The Young STAND Awards 2013

The Young STAND Awards 2013


The Young STAND (Scots Tackling Alcohol and Drugs) Award is a new award scheme led by the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy (SCPHRP) and Mentor that aims to recognise promising projects in the field of alcohol and substance misuse prevention with young people in Scotland.

Winner of the Community category: The Big ShoutER

The Big ShoutER project is a youth involvement, community research andpeer education project. The key aim of the project is to actively involve young people in decisions affecting them to enable them to become effective contributors, successful learners, confident individuals, and responsible citizens, all of which contribute to and impact upon a young person’s physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing.

Winner of the Schools category: DRC Generations

The DRC Generations programme is focused on young people who attend Knightswood, St Thomas Aquinas and Notre Dame High School, and nine local associated primary schools. The project is realistic about the fact that young people experiment, and therefore provides training, advice and support to minimise the associated risks. The programme works in partnership with young people, parents/careers, community groups, Police, Council Departments and representatives from the business community to tackle alcohol and drug misuse and related issues.
The winners will both receive mentoring/practical consultancy support from SCPHRP and Mentor Scotland. This support will help to develop, share, and embed effective practices from the award winning projects.
