Reginald Okoflex Inya, New Communities' Partnership explained that:
• Drugs culture differs among ethnic groups and encouraged the audience to remember that one cap does not fit all.
• Drug use is breaking families apart.
• Suicide is a big issue for new communities.
• Asylum seekers are vulnerable to taking and dealing drugs because of their situation.
• There is a lack of knowledge and data around minority ethnic drug use.
• Like Travellers, New Communities need to be more involved in decision making and have their voices heard by being included instead of excluded.
