Transform Drug Policy Foundation

Anyone's Child Tour

A network of families who have been damaged by current drug policy come together to support each other in their campaign for a more humane and just system. Their personal stories are captured on a website. They speak at events to educate the public about controlling drugs through legal regulation.

Situation

Families who have lost loved ones or seen them imprisoned and stigmatised because of drug use currently have nowhere to go. They are marginalised, unheard and discounted. But their call for the legal regulation of drugs is a brave one that aims to save lives and protect people. Young people currently have easy access to unregulated drugs that can kill them. Anyone's Child wants to take them out of the hands of gangsters and give the control to the government, to doctors and to those who care.

Solution

Politicians close down discussions about drugs by saying they are terrified for their kids. Anyone's Child cuts through this rhetoric with the real life experience of families who know death, loss and trauma but have chosen a rational, evidence-based approach. Our project gives them the training to speak out, a platform to speak from and the support of experts where needed. It is already seeing results, gaining access to mainstream media and MPs, appealing to hearts and changing minds.
