North East Lincolnshire
Drug & Alcohol Action Team (DAAT)
Welcome to the North East Lincolnshire Drug & Alcohol Action Team (DAAT)
The Drug and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) is part of the Safer & Stronger Communities Partnership in North East Lincolnshire, which is responsible for reducing crime, disorder, reoffending and substance misuse.
The two key responsibilities of the DAAT are to coordinate local delivery of the national drug and alcohol strategies. This involves working with all the key agencies in North East Lincolnshire, particularly the council, police, Care Trust Plus and probation as well as a host of other voluntary and private organisations.
Drug and alcohol misuse treatment agencies are financed by the DAAT, using a budget made up from local and national funds, to provide a variety of different treatment services according to local need. It is then the responsibility of the DAAT to ensure those services represent value for money and deliver effective services. The work of the DAAT, how it uses the money and how well the treatment services are performing is monitored by a local Board at Chief Executive level, and by the National Treatment Agency, a specialist section of the NHS.
The "hiwecanhelp" website
As part of the ongoing development of how we utilise information technology the following content has been moved to our second website, hi: DIP, The Roundabout, Treatment, Young People, and Drugs Information. The neldat website will continue to be utilised but will focus on providing information that is more strategic and policy based.
The hi website was originally commissioned by North Tyneside Primary Care Trust and is now available to all DAAT’s in England. It’s purpose is to provide a “virtual” one stop-shop that will connect you to services in your area, provide harm reduction information with animation and bluetooth learning supports, members can join discussion forums for drug workers, families, carers & drug users and it uses the latest technology and innovation to promote learning, reduce harm & save lives.
