Transform’s achievements.



“The Task Force would also like to extend its appreciation to Beau Kilmer and Steve Rolles [Transform] for their counsel and advice.”

Canadian Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation


“I am grateful for the professional support that Transform Drugs provides both ad hoc and more through more formal commissioning. If Transform were not available I would struggle to continue to be an influential advocate for drug policy reform.

I am therefore happy to commend them to potential donors as a professional and knowledgeable charity.”

Arfon Jones, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales
