About the session
In this session we are joined by representatives of the English Substance Use Commissioners Group (ESUCG): Niamh Cullen - Vice-Chair and Yorkshire & Humber representative and Kim Hager - Executive member and South-West representative. Lisa Byrne - Executive Member and South East Representative - also contributed to the session but was unfortunately unable to join on the day.
As commissioners in their respective regions, Kim Hager and Niamh Cullen address how we may begin to tackle stigma in policy, service needs and in the commissioning of services.
