In the last nine years, the Dundee Peer Education Project (DPEP) has successfully developed and delivered peer education across Dundee. The project has developed an effective model in Dundee to tackle issues relating to drugs, smoking and alcohol using peer-led methods to inform and educate young people. Since its inception in 2000, the project has linked successfully with schools and communities, developing peer led approaches to raise awareness and share information regarding drugs, alcohol, smoking prevention, transition and other issues integral to the context of young people’s lifestyles.
