02 | Overview of the project: problem description and activities.
The so-called nuisances related to drug and alcohol consumption in public space is an important policy issue in nearly all European cities. Many local and municipal authorities are struggling to address it in an effective manner. Interventions targeting adults are limited and mainly based on repressive and sanctionary acts, such as fines or detention.
Less is know about strategies that tackle wider economic and social exclusionary patterns, and the roles the can play in the support of people experiencing homeless, and other underserved groups. The Street Support Project targets social services, adult trainer and local governments.
