CREST, Young People’s Substance Misuse Service is a project run by Redcar & Cleveland Local Authority as part of the Healthy Schools initiative. Its aim is to offer support, advice and treatment to young people using drugs and alcohol under the age of 19. Parents, carers and professionals are also able to receive advice and guidance. CREST’s advice to parents/carers is:
- Always check with your child’s friend’s parents or carers to ensure that your child is staying somewhere safe and with adequate supervision.
- Do not buy children alcohol or give children money which could be used to buy drugs or alcohol.
- Keep in regular contact with your child via mobile phone. Ensure their phone is always fully charged.
- Consider using a family locator GPS tracker on your child’s phone.
- If your child does not return home at an agreed time report them missing to the police.
If you are a parent/carer and have any concerns for your child’s wellbeing or require further information regarding CREST please contact Mr Rees at school. More information about CREST can be found via the link HERE.
