Independent Drugs Commission for Dundee

Dundee Partnership has asked Figure 8 Consultancy to set up and facilitate an independent Drugs Commission for the City to investigate the complex and serious issues caused by drug use. The Commission has started meeting and collecting evidence – and has identified the significant number of drug deaths in Dundee as its first and most pressing priority. With this in mind the Commission is keen to engage with as wide an audience as possible to understand why Dundee is facing these challenges and to identify better solutions.

The Commission is also aware that these issues are not confined to Dundee, and that lessons can be learned which could be applied across Scotland (and beyond).

We have developed a very simple (one key question) survey which we want to use to hear people’s voices and to encourage as wide an audience as possible to sign up for regular updates about the work of the Commission.

The survey can be accessed at: and will be open for completion until Friday 7th September 2018.

We would be grateful if you could complete the survey yourself as well as distribute the survey link to as many people as you think might also be interested – whether in Scotland or elsewhere.

Many thanks in anticipation of your response.
