1 CDAAL Survey 2012

2 Survey  Breadth of work within voluntary drug and alcohol sector  The added value brought by the sector  Looking ahead – sustainability  Commissioning – views and preparedness

3 Breadth of work in the sector  For many organisations there is an holistic approach with many clients experiencing a range of issues that are supported within one service, including substance users, carers, children, familes  The model of integrated working has been standard in the voluntary sector for many years DrugsAlcoholTobacco Sexual Health Mental health Blood Borne Viruses Other (please specify) Families/carers Any addictive behavior

4 Breadth of work in the sector  Although individual work is the core of many services, there is a wide range of activity which represents the holistic approach the sector does well 1:1 key work / support work15 Counselling 8 Other therapies 4 Group work 9 Social activities 6 Employability support/activity 5 Education/learning opportunities 7 Housing support 3 Financial/benefits advice 4 Peer support 8 Support for self help/recovery community development 11 Carer support 3 Family support 7 Other (please specify) Parenting work Individual therapeutic work with children Vocational opportunities SMART in Community HMP Edinburgh counselling HMP recovery work Criminal Justice work

5 The added value - resources  10% of paid staff are entirely funded from non-statutory sources  56% of paid staff are funded from a blend of statutory and non-statutory sources  33% of paid staff are entirely funded by statutory sources

6 The added value - volunteers  There are at least 151 volunteers involved in the voluntary drug and alcohol sector  These volunteers contribute over 500 hours of capacity each week  There are over 60 trained peer supporters involved in helping people  Only one organisation achieves this with statutory funding alone – most of this is achieved through non-statutory funding.

7 Looking ahead - sustainability  Stable 60% have diverse funding sources 33% have long term grants in place 26% have more than 3 months reserves  Vulnerable 20% have only one or two funding sources 60% have only short term grants in place 20% have less than 3 months reserves

8 Looking ahead-sustainability  All funding reduction scenarios from 5-50% will result in reduction in quality of service for up to 69% of services  All funding reduction scenarios from 5-50% will result in reduction in quantity of service for up to 84% of services  A funding reduction of 5% would lead to redundancy in 29% of services and reduction of 50% would lead to redundancy in 86% of services

9 Looking ahead-sustainability  In all cases any amount of statutory funding reduction will have a negative impact on other funding agreements  For 15% of organisations a 10% reduction in statutory funding will lead to loss of other grants; a 20% reduction would lead to other grant loss for 30% of organisations; a 50% reduction would lead to other grant loss for 43% of organisations  42% of organisations would close if they faced a 50% reduction in statutory funding  66% of organisations would close if they faced a 100% loss in statutory funding

10 Looking ahead-sustainability  Complex impact >Loss of rent for premises >Some organisations have contracts for different parts of service alongside different timescales. Often tendering for 3 years for one part when other parts have only 1 year funding making organisations fragile.

11 Commissioning  Poor consultation process and bad practice in terms of making consultation responses public, as well as making any changes made as a result of the consultation explicit  Don't feel that it was robust enough and felt that it was somewhat directed!  I did take part in the consultation and completed an electronic consultation document which was submitted to the EADP. However I have not yet received feedback although it was suggested that there would be feedback. The document seemed to lean towards securing particular answers to questions.  A paper exercise undertaken by the EADP. No commitment to a level playing field with the statutory sector.  Different scenarios in different parts of the Lothians
