This survey was conducted on behalf of the Bray Drugs Awareness Forum (BDAF) and was supported by Bray Youth & Information Services (BYS), and the Bray Local Drugs Task Force (BLDTF). The BDAF was established in 1992 and comprises of representatives from community groups, voluntary groups and statutory agencies with a shared interest in drug issues in Bray. The work of the forum is funded by the Bray Local Drugs Task Force. Bray Youth & Information Services (a regional office of Crosscare) administers the funding and provides a base for the two drugs education workers who are funded through the project. The aim of the forum is to provide a range of drug awareness and education initiatives for the Bray community that responds to local drug issues.

The need for this survey arose due to the lack of recent local data on drug use issues among young people in Bray. In addition, no data existed to approximately position young people in Bray within a national context in relation to drug use. Therefore the need to accumulate data on drug use (types, patterns of use and related issues) among young people in Bray is vital in ensuring relevant and effective service provision to address and respond to changing local drug issues.
