Case study based on a local drug charity – students must respond to the case study with a 1500-word report.
Case Study: The Society of St. James
The Society of St. James in Southampton has hired you to use your expertise to put forward a proposal for a new innovative pilot programme. They would like the pilot programme to help drug users who come to the charity for support with addiction. You have been tasked with writing a report that will be presented to the Trustees of the charity.
The report should:
– Provide a brief review of academic literature relating to addiction.
– Outline the work of the charity, along with its strategies, aims and policies.
– Propose an innovative project aimed at supporting those who access the charity for help with drug addiction.
– Explain how the project aligns with The Society of St. James’ strategies and aims, and how it aligns with the UK National Drug Strategy.
You may use examples of approaches/projects from other jurisdictions to strengthen your proposal.
