‘Junkie’ Scotland: Adverts aim to end stigma over alcohol and drug problems – The Herald
A national campaign calling for drug and alcohol problems to be treated as a health condition and urging people to stop using words such as “alcoholic” and “junkie” launches on Monday.
The Scottish Government campaign aims to highlight the damage caused by the stigma of problem drug and alcohol use and how this can stop those affected from being able to get help.
The campaign comes as Scotland struggles with a drugs death crisis. Last year, 1,339 people died in Scotland because of drug use, up 5% on the previous year, and the highest on record.

Rural Tourism Survey

Greater Renfrewshire and Inverclyde Local Action Group
Have your Say - Here’s the opportunity for you to have your say and contribute to plans for growing tourism locally.
The European funded LEADER programme directly contributed and levered match funding totaling about £4.5m to 25 projects across the rural areas of East Renfrewshire, Renfrewshire and Inverclyde, from 2014 to 2021. The programme has now stopped (with Brexit) but Scottish Government recognised the value of intervention in rural areas and has agreed to the local authorities exploring what should be done in the future. They and the local management group have decided to look at how to grow rural tourism and have appointed tourism specialists Business Pointer to help with planning. This work is being done in anticipation that funds will be made available and the rural area will have a programme ready to roll out as soon as any announcement about funds is made.
While focusing on tourism-related opportunities (accommodation, trails, food and drink, attractions etc.), because of the strength of the sector and the potential to create new jobs, the Councils and local management group are keen to complement engagement with the  tourism industry by involving community groups and organisations to strengthen the local base of new ideas and projects and encourage community owned ventures and social enterprises.
At this stage, if you have ideas, they would be welcome.
We’re also looking for groups that might want to be involved in managing the future rural tourism programme. You can contact us directly and we’ll give you more information and be happy to meet you. While this could be done pre-Christmas, the reality is that most of this communication will be in January.
If you want to discuss the project in more detail call or mail:
