2017 will also be the 20th anniversary of the death of Mr Trimingham’s son Damien from a heroin overdose in 1997 and in the lead up to the events Mr Trimingham will share learnings and observations from his years of working with families adversely affected by drug and alcohol use through the service he founded, Family Drug Support (FDS).
