BeLonG To Youth Services is the national youth service for lesbian gay bisexual and transgender (LGBT) young people in Ireland. BeLonG to was established in 2003 and envisions a future in which LGBT young people are safe and supported in their families, schools and communities, and all young people are equally cared for, valued, and respected.

 

BeLonG To welcomes and appreciates the Joint Committee of Justice, Defence and Equality’s invitation for written submissions from interested groups on altering the present approach to sanctions for possession of certain amounts of drugs for personal use.

 

BeLonG To Youth Services submission to the Joint Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality is to advocate ‘in favour’ for altering the present approach to sanctions for possession of certain amounts of drugs for personal use. BeLonG To believe it is in the best interests of LGBT young people and indeed all young people that legislative change is needed to address how we treat young people who are found to be in possession of illegal drugs for their own personal use.
