A DROP-IN drugs and alcohol treatment service in Ascot has moved to a new location.

Dubbed the 'drugs bus', the mobile unit is now in car park number six, (Hermitage Parade) in Ascot High Street.

The outreach service was first established in the car park next to the Jaguar Garage, in the High Street, in January. The specially kitted-out bus is fully equipped to offer free, confidential advice and support from experienced professionals, every Friday morning.

Royal Borough cabinet member for adult services and health, councillor David Coppinger, said: "The outreach service is invaluable and we are very grateful to Ascot Racecourse for providing space in one of their car parks."

To contact the the council's drug and alcohol action team (DAAT) for an appointment, call 01628 796732/3 or email daat@rbwm.gov.uk
