Organisations that were shortlisted for a GSK IMPACT Award between 2000 and 2009 were also given the opportunity to apply to the 2012 IMPACT Champions. Crew 2000 is one of three organisations who were awarded a gold champions award.
CREW 2000, an Edinburgh-based charity provides drug counselling and support services, without judgement, for people looking to manage or reduce their drug use. Since its GSK IMPACT Award in 2008, the organisation has doubled in size and introduced a number of innovative programmes, including an online assessment tool. It continues to work closely with the Scottish Parliament and health service to support the implementation of a national drugs strategy.
