‘Not for Human Consumption’ – The Use of Novel Psychoactive Substances by Homeless Young People in the North East

Throughout May 2016 to January 2017, Youth Homeless North East (YHNE) ran a series of participatory workshops with young homeless people across the region, focused on the topic of NPS. The aims of the workshops were to:

  • Develop a greater understanding of their knowledge and understanding of, as well as their
    motivations for and experiences of using, NPS;
  • Explore the likely impacts of the legislative ban on the supply of and demand for NPS among
    vulnerable people
  • Identify good practice responses to the use of NPS by vulnerable young people
