Part of the Leeds vision to be a healthy and caring city

Forward Leeds supports adults and young people to make healthy choices about alcohol and drugs.  We reduce risk-taking behaviours through dedicated prevention, early intervention and tailored programmes. Our ultimate goal is to support people to achieve and sustain recovery.

Forward Leeds is Britain’s second biggest multi-agency project to tackle alcohol and drug problems.

We are a partnership made up of staff from Humankind, BARCA-Leeds, St Anne’s Community Services and the Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
