AIMS: We offer advice, support and structured intervention for individuals and families affected in any way by alcohol misuse and other related issues. We offer 1-1 counselling, group work programmes (including mutual aid groups), creative therapies and family group sessions. We have a range of services designed to support children and young people impacted by parental substance misuse or vulnerable as a result of their own behaviour/circumstances. This includes a dedicated service supporting those living in Kinship Care.
