LOCAL IMPACT Drugs Awareness Video Presentation

On Sunday 7th of October the Just Help Foundation presented 2 events with a common theme: Young People and the Future.

keith Parry speaking about Local ImpactThe first confronted a serious issue of our time in our communities - Drug Abuse, premiering a DVD shortly to be distributed in Tameside titled "Local Impact", funded by the Big Lottery as a drugs awareness project produced by the Just Help Foundation.

The film was shot by young people from around Tameside interviewing local community figures,  representatives such as doctors, youth workers, police, families and victims of drug abuse - and themselves. The interviews were assembled into a powerful 12 minute program offering not just a real-life story of tragedy, but some insights and positive advice for those seeking help. The film, introduced by Mizanur Rahman of the Just Help Foundation was very well received by the large audience of 225 community leaders, teachers, councillors and guests present - which included several of those appearing in the interviews and volunteers from behind the scenes.

It is hoped that on distribution the video will be able to have an equal impact upon the local community at large in influencing behaviour and raising awareness of a real problem.

Mizanur Rahman would like to thank all the volunteers and Just Help members who made the event possible.
