Children and Young People Forum

Voluntary sector organisations deliver a range of drug and alcohol treatment, recovery, and early intervention services for children and young people (CYP), a group who need to be able to access specialist and age-specific services.

The Collective Voice Children and Young People Forum brings together representatives from voluntary sector drug and alcohol treatment services to ensure the visibility of children and young people’s alcohol and substance use and the interventions delivered in response.

The forum provides a space for collaboration on activities and influencing opportunities, peer support, networking, intelligence sharing, and troubleshooting across organisations.

The chair and secretariat of the forum is provided by Collective Voice. The Terms of Reference can be accessed here.

Expressions of interest can be submitted via this Form.


Collective Voice is the national charity working to improve England’s drug and alcohol treatment and recovery systems
