if you tell him I'd be saw a summation i see i see any letter added so many devices fields including training whatever Camilla Serena become a traveling to utter a la Pieta nonce with mono and I lunch okay now that people know what I family's here now by the way too into Somalia hi SATA ii I'm vodka tumble Serena I'm new luda opener so I tried out the service manager of a project will kick it which is based on truxel road which is only a few doors away from mom Africa we are actually we're neighbors and in terms of we also work started now to develop a relationship where we can kind of work together in community settings so I just want to kind of give you a bit of background while i'm here today to talk about is what brought us together to gaze the issues of cat and understand that there is a problem within the Somali community and the Yemeni community which we have here with the issues of cat but we also like to do today is a consultation with you guys where three questionnaires where we would like to hear from you what issues are concerned you are the community and also in terms of how can we work together to address them on a community aspect so they will cover a number of different themes are also you'll have them under question a sheetz so if you guys can fill them in towards the a to let us know what we should be looking at and how you can work collectively together and that will be in how community aspects criminal justice terms of building type of relationship with with the police and other community services that you've got locally you didn't want to talk to you a bit about the law of taps so you guys know each other because it's just recently been bad and I know that you know in terms of lot of people did explain and there is agreement and disagreement so I see I heard from some they say it's a cultural thing you know and then I speak to other elders from the Somali in the future and they said no it's not part of our culture it is basically something that's there that people use so we get two sides of the story some people say cat is a cultural thing for the smiling every community and some people say is no culture it's not part of our culture is just the problem that we want to sort end so in jun 2015 14 cat was officially made would officially banned in the UK so it's no longer now it is a criminal afternoon in terms of if somebody gets caught with it and just to let you know what we've been trying to do to address it locally so that there was no community tensions we work very closely with with the police locally so when the Badminton forced what we did in what is the beast is coming in and start locking people up who who just had cut on them or they were cheering it so what we did in berkeley partition with at least with where the actual program that we kind of developed with the local cited works very well there wasn't a single arrest in sparkbrook viper-one arrest right which is fantastic news because we had a massive issues and the transformation of something that was available readily and people are selling in shops that suddenly got banged and we didn't get up to several years of prison frame so it was cut something for the community to adjust and i think that you know the key should be applauded for that of the way in handle it wasn't just enforcement it was about working with us to educate us to say look this is now banned substance we don't want to just lock people up we want to completely SAT there which we done a leaflet everybody got leaving around the Spa Creek area in Arabic and in Somalia and then on top of that you've got leaflets on which should be on your cable which we post it to almost every household in spot them so we want you to make sure that nobody got rested and nobody don't roll cut now is a Class C drug does everybody know what classification classiest let me know okay that's fine plasti is in the same classification as cannabis so people get caught with cannabis that's not she in terms of cannabis any other classes rain is just yet just to kind of add to that and one of these will be trying to do for a number of years is yes engaging different communities hunting in terms of we find out that you guys are are working locally right next to a spa be doing a fantastic job we've been doing drug and alcohol work for now over 10 years in different communities we know that you guys are new community and what we want to do is in volume or get involved with what's going on locally and also to support parking and loma prieta love to come into the community and to also utilize some of our services and also let them know what else is available thank you very much glad you put our places allowed there with you thank you so among the foundation basically is dealing with these issues the other issue is about women have your problem or nightmares for example where we came from Somalia because of the war they didn't have social care now most of
