An audience of well over 100 tuned in to our parents’ seminar this week, on drugs and alcohol awareness.

This was led by Asha Fowells and Fiona Spargo-Mabbs of drug education charity, the Daniel Spargo-Mabbs (DSM) Foundation.

The world for young people is a very different place than it was for their parents, and the workshop provided a great opportunity to become more aware of what issues face children and young people today and how to help keep them safe.

The Foundation was set up by Fiona and Tim Spargo-Mabbs in 2014 after the tragic death of their 16-year-old son Daniel as a result of taking ecstasy.

Its aim is to support young people to make safe choices about drugs. It works with students, teachers, parents, carers and professionals in schools, colleges and community organisations across the UK.

Fiona Spargo-Mabbs also ran a workshop this week with Third Year students.
