1 West of England ESF BIG Lottery - Breaking down the barriers to employment Adults who misuse drugs and alcohol Bath and North East Somerset Baseline data Current local provision Gaps /added Prevalence estimates show that B&NES has a lower than national average of opiate and/or crack users in the population. (842, 7.1 per population, 8.9 nationally). Keeping waiting times low plays a vital role in supporting recovery in local communities. In B&NES, 100% of drug users wait no more than three weeks to access treatment. This compares to 97% nationally.3 When engaged in treatment, people use fewer illegal drugs, commit less crime, improve their health, and manage their lives better which also benefits the community. In B&NES, 94% of drug users are engaged in effective treatment (treated for 3 months or more) which is on par with the national average.).4 The progress made by drug users such as abstinence from opiate use and crack use is better than the national average and 79% of clients cease injecting compared to 60% nationally. 82% of clients successfully completing treatment no longer report a housing need compared to 88% nationally.5 Although considerably lower than in 2001, the prevalence of children and young people who say they take drugs in the last month, last year and ever appears to have plateaued since The rate of year old hospital admissions due to substance misuse in B&NES between the financial years 2010/ /13 was 50.7 per 100,000 population aged years (directly standardised rate). This was significantly lower than the rate for the South West (78.0) and England (75.2).

2 Bristol Baseline data Current local provision Proportion of clients successfully completing treatment without representing are: Opiates- 8.85% (251/2836 clients) Non-Opiates % (265/539) (Public Health Outcomes Framework Mar 13-Feb 14) Alcohol Successful Completions as a proportion of all in treatment (rolling 12 months)- 23.8% (187/798) (ROADS Performance Report-BCC Oct13-Sept 14) Bristol ROADS community drug service providing support to users of illicit, legal and prescribed substances.

The number of dependent drinkers in Bristol estimated to be Active employer engagement/employers that are willing to employ people from the group On-going mentoring to help prevent relapse Demand for opiate services remains high despite a national reduction in opiate presentations. Successful completion rates is generally favourable with comparable cities Injecting a key issue with Hep C a priority health concern for people who inject drugs with infection rates around 50%. Robust pathways with primary care allow for rapid access to treatment services

3 North Somerset Baseline data 1056 people are registered for drug and alcohol treatment in North Somerset (Source: Public Health England November 2014) North Somerset has just under 6,000 dependent drinkers. With estimates that there are 25,000 people who binge drink (Source: NSC JSNA April 2013) data indicated there were approximately 1,326 opiate and crack cocaine udders (OCUs); equivalent to a rate of 10.1 per 1,000 head of population. This is higher than the rates for both the South West (8.2 per 1,000) and the national rate (8.9 per 1,000) and represents a 2.7% increase compared with Current local Drug & Alcohol Treatment provision Route 1 work club Gaps /added Addaction National Careers Service Weston Works Weston College Bridgwater College Carlton Centre College, Community Learning and WEA Vision for Skills Voluntary Action North Somerset (VANS) & Members Weston Hospicecare Healthy Living Centre Lighthouse at Weston Knightstone Housing ARA Somerset Wood Recycling Kewstoke Community Farm Alliance Living IMPACT Working Links Concentration of need in Weston Super Mare NS residents have worse than the average for access to specialist treatment. Majority of drug-users are aged Many are parents (Source: North Somerset JSNA April 2014)

4 South Gloucestershire Baseline Data South Gloucestershire s treatment system has a good track record for engaging with OCUs. Collectively, this cohort of service users has a significant impact on crime, unemployment, safeguarding children, and long-term benefit reliance for the local area. At the end of Q4 2014/2015, there were 901 service users in the local structured treatment. 486 of these service users were opiate clients, 168 Alcohol only clients, 100 alcohol and non-opiate clients and 147 non-opiate only clients. We also recorded 55% Opiate and Crack Users (OCUs) penetration in South Gloucestershire, versus Avon & Somerset average of 46%. Ensuring that the waiting times to access treatment is as minimal as possible is key to a recovery-orientated treatment. In South Gloucestershire, 94% of the service users waited less than three weeks to access treatment, against a target of 85%. The majority of the drug users in treatment were aged 25 34, in line with the employment age. In South Gloucestershire, those who were not on benefits are twice as likely to complete their drug treatment successfully. The engagement with the local treatment ensures that the service users use less or abstain from using drugs, commit fewer crimes, and improve their health and quality of life. Source: National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS). We do not have any local data for gambling addiction. Developing Health & Independence (DHI) Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership Trust (AWP) Battle Against Tranquilisers (BAT) Current Provision The provision of substance misuse in South Gloucestershire comprises a range of agencies which deliver drug and alcohol advice, treatment and information. All providers offer individual key worker support and services are tailored to individual needs. Services available include: Substance abuse assessments and referrals Substitute prescribing Accommodation advice and support Acupuncture and other holistic therapies Detox and rehabilitation programmes Drug treatment options Harm reduction and needle exchange Life and employment skills Service user forum We are also piloting various innovative projects related to substance misuse, such as the Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS) Pilot Project, Opioid

5 Analgesics Dependency (OAD) Project, GP Alcohol Liaison Nurse and Alcohol Interface Nurse in a secondary care setting. Gaps / added Based on South Gloucestershire Adult Substance Misuse Needs Assessment 2013/2014, the following needs have been identified: Added Value Locally, benefit advice, job-match support, and National Careers Advice sessions are the three popular employment interventions that are currently being delivered by DHI. On average, the agency conducted four groups for employment work activities on a monthly basis, with an average attendance of five service users. Service users who access the Employment Service tend to be those who are relatively stable, either having achieved abstinence or stability through Opiate Substitution Therapy. This is because employment support seems to be an unviable immediate goal for those with a pattern of chaotic substance misuse, as priority will be focused on initial support and stabilisation. Gaps Those who are looking for employment often face the following barriers: Finding and maintaining employment when presenting in a state of intoxication or withdrawal. Lack of work experience or work history, as the service users tend to have been out of employment for a significant period of time, or had never been employed prior to presenting to the treatment system. Literacy issues, where some service users did not attend their school regularly towards the end of their education. Criminal records. A national survey conducted by the UK Drug Policy Commission found that two-thirds of employers would refuse to employ a former heroin or crack cocaine user, even if they were otherwise suitable for the job Mental health issues Low self-confidence Recommendations Over the next 12 months, we will be exploring the following recommendations: With the Jobcentre Plus, o Create a new referral pathway for alcohol clients via the Jobcentre Plus, as those who claim jobseeker allowance and

6 employment support allowance were overrepresented in the alcohol treatment system compared to the national profile, signifying that there is a hidden cohort of substance misusers with those accessing the Jobcentre Plus o o Ensure that the information on service users benefiting from the Jobcentre Plus protocols (TPR1 and TPR2) is collected in the next financial year, to ensure seamless exchange of information of the service users with the Jobcentre. Work with the Criminality Champions of the Jobcentre Plus to ensure that the barriers for those who have criminal records who want to go to work are challenged Consider channel-shifting a proportion of the service users to volunteering first before employment. This may help to address the issues of low self-confidence and self-esteem before they apply for part-time and full-time roles. Consider partnership working with Adult Learning Team of South Gloucestershire Council to increase the literacy of the service users to prepare them for employment. We will also be working closely to support the following agenda: Child Poverty Strategy - A child is said to be living in poverty if their household income is less than 60% of the average wage. In South Gloucestershire, there are more than 6,000 children living in poverty. The two main drivers of child poverty are worklessness and low pay. Parental drug and alcohol misuse has been identified as a barrier to work. Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy - A Mental Health Needs Assessment was undertaken to obtain local mental health data to inform the Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy. It identified groups with the highest risk of mental ill health in South Gloucestershire, including substance misuse clients. To implement the Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy, it has been recognised that joint working with drug and alcohol treatment system is desirable to address the need of this cohort of service users.
