Citywide Drugs Crisis Campaign was set up in 1995 as a community based response to the ever worsening drugs crisis in the Dublin area. In 1995 there was a clear identification of the urgent need to establish some type of effective and coherent response to the drugs issue, a response which would serve to bring together a large number of community activists who were involved in tackling the drugs crisis within their own areas.

In the period from 1995 to 2005, Citywide has continued to provide opportunities and mechanisms for community activists to come together in order to discuss and progress issues and concerns relating to the drugs crisis, a crisis which has not gone away or disappeared in the 10 years of Citywide's existence.

It is considered that Citywide has achieved a significant amount since its establishment in 1995 and has provided advice, guidance and support to hundreds of local people who are involved in tackling the drugs crisis within their own communities. On the basis of the work which has taken place between 1995 and 2005, the management and staff considered it to be useful and necessary to carry out a review of Citywide's activities during this 10 year period.

This review would be used to celebrate the achievements of Citywide and the work of local communities and community activists in developing a co-ordinated community based response to the drugs crisis. The outcomes from the review would also serve to inform and to influence the future priorities and focuses for Citywide over the next 3-5 year period.
