Summary of report contentA community survey was undertaken by Healthwatch Isles of Scilly to support the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Drug and Alcohol Action Team evaluation of services and need in the islands. The survey ran from 11th November to 2nd December 2016 and was available online and by post. It was advertised through a postal and e bulletin, posters, on Facebook, and was available at points around the islands. Facebook reach for the survey post was 435. 35 people engaged with the post and 8 reacted, commented or shared. 30 survey responses were received: 27 online; and 3 by post. The summary of findings informed very few people engaged with this survey. The people who did respond shared a concern about a culture of social acceptance of excessive drinking, or drug use, in Scilly. Many respondents expressed worries about the effects of this culture on children and young people. Comments about underage drinking were less censorious and more concerned with the need to address the causes and the example set by adults. The report contains 0 recommendations but a range of suggestions for improvements.
