Quarriers - Operation Protector
About Quarriers - Operation Protector
Operation Protector is a pioneering initiative by Arrows, a Quarriers service providing drug and alcohol support in Moray, working in partnership with Police Scotland, social work housing and advocacy. The project targets cuckooing – the practice of taking over the home of a vulnerable person to establish a base for illegal drug dealing – and is the first of its kind in the UK. Through targeted visits, community presence, mobile outreach teams and work in schools, the project addresses stigma and barriers around seeking support for substance misuse, and the impact of serious crime, and initiated positive activities including weekly football sessions.
