Islanders are being asked for their opinions on how to tackle drug and alcohol misuse in Guernsey from 2015.

Guernsey's home and health departments are developing the scope of the strategy from 2015 to 2020.

The current strategy, which aims to minimise the harm caused by drug and alcohol misuse, began in 2007.

Paul Whitfield, chair of the strategy group, said a wide range of organisations and individuals have been invited to respond.

He said: "With the limited resources we have in tackling both drug and alcohol misuse in the Bailiwick, we want to ensure that the strategy will provide the best possible service to the community, in the most cost effective way.

"This is the ideal opportunity for islanders to voice their opinions and provide us with suggestions that will assist in shaping our new strategy."
