The Drugs and Housing Forum is a closed forum for drugs and housing workers, service users, academics, and others with a profesional interest in the issues of drugs and housing.

In order to read and post to the website, you will have to register. The website is not visible to non-registered viewers. This is to ensure a safe environment for participants to discuss sensitive issues, and to reduce unwanted and unhelpful postings.

The Forum is hosted on a free bulletin board, which also carries advertising. The website is outside the main Drugs and Housing Website.

We want to establish and run a safe, professional and productive discussion group, and believe that the following rules will contribute to achieving this:

  • please endeavour to keep postings relevant an on-topic. Most people in the field are very busy and don't have the time or inclination to get bogged down in irrelevance.
  • please attempt to use spell-checkers and read posts before sending to maintain a good level of quality and accuracy
  • ensure that you maintain client confidentiality; please do not post in a way that could lead to your residents being identified.
  • while the Forum is not open to non-registered viewers, this does not mean that members have been vetted or identity-checked. Please bear this in mind when posting information which could expose yourself or your organisation to risk.
  • avoid postings that are intended to cause offence; attacks on other forum members, inappropriate language, racist, homophobic or discriminatory language may result in barring from the forum.
  • if you wish to see new categories added to the website, please suggest them to the Forum Administrator
