The FEAD project began in February 2008 and was designed and developed in-house at Lifeline project as in line with our strategic goals.
1 Service Development
2 Governance: Accountability and Viability, Safety and Quality
3 Workforce Development
4 Learning and Engagement
The FEAD initiative grew in direct proportion to the quality of the contributions and generosity of the contributors. In a period of change for the drugs field we are pleased to be able to open the door to our own learning and perspectives, and do so for people who visit the website.
There are a number of aims behind the project
1. To demonstrate the wealth of knowledge and experience in the field.
2. To support current debates and bring them to a wider audience.
3. To provide discussion material for training and development purposes.
4. To use video clips to share key documents and other further reading.
5. To establish a platform through which to share important ideas with our workforce, client group, and community.
The project is resourced and managed via Lifeline. Contributors do not charge for their time.
If Lifeline has been asked to produce film clips for FEAD, all files produced remain with Lifeline in order that the primary purpose of FEAD is maintained. We do not currently produce films for other parties.
You can request further information about the project here.
FEAD is produced and edited by Maggie Rogan
