Addiction Services Prevention & Service Support Team

NHS Ayrshire and Arran Addiction Services Prevention and Services Support Team offer a range of addictions related training to staff and community groups across Ayrshire and Arran. Training ranges from basic alcohol and drug awareness to more specialist courses including harm reduction and injecting equipment provision. (see Link for Training Calendar)

In addition to co-ordinating and delivering the training courses featured in the Addiction Training calendar, the Prevention and Service Support Team receive a number of requests for ‘in-house’ training. These training sessions are provided free of charge and take place at the venue of the organisation’s choice. These specially commissioned courses are designed around the needs of the organisation or agency and are delivered face-to-face by their trainers.

Their team has a flexible approach to these individual training requests, with many sessions being delivered at weekends and evenings if these are the most suitable options for the participants. The organisations requesting the training have varied requirements and as a result the sessions can be run as two-day, one-day, or half-day events. Awareness sessions of a few hours are also delivered regularly. If you are considering a training request they would ask for a minimum of eight participants for these in-house events. If you require training for less than eight participants you may be put on a waiting list until training can be combined with another request and delivered at a mutually suitable time and venue.

Should you wish to request any ad-hoc training, please contact the PSST and ask for a training needs request form. This allows you to detail your requirements and ensures the best package is designed to fit your needs. For more information you can also contact the team on 01294 322339
