Royal Briefing on GORT progress

24 May, 2021

The Royal couple of Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, today met members of the Glasgow Overdose Response Team to hear of its challenges and progress, and its initial impact on drug related deaths.

The meeting took place via video link during a visit to Turning Point Scotland's Coatbridge service.

Over the past ten years, through her official engagements and charitable work, The Duchess of Cambridge has gained an understanding that the root causes of adverse challenges, including addiction issues, can very often be traced back to the earliest years of a person’s life, and have an impact over generations. This has shaped much of The Duchess’ ongoing work on early childhood through The Royal Foundation.
