For the SMART UK Community of members, the Annual Conference was an absolute must every year. However in the current cash strapped climate of our member’s organisations , we felt it was more beneficial to have reduced the annual subscription fees rather than have a conference every year.

We have therefore opted to have a conference every “few” years rather than put pressure on already diminishing budgets.

We have had the benefit of wonderful speakers every year who shared with their friends and colleagues in SMART UK information about new advances and projects in the field of substance misuse. It is an ideal forum for people to network with colleagues and counterparts and to keep up to speed with CPD. Mostly though, our members feel a sense of renewed vigour after the conference, the focus is always empowerment and encouragement of the SMART members and is a small gesture from SMART UK of support to some truly wonderful people. We look forward to seeing you all again.
