Our new project offers support to carers of loved ones with drug and/or alcohol misuse problems…contact us today, we’re here to help!

We are delighted to have been successful in our bid to create a new project for some of the most vulnerable and hidden carers in our community thanks to Carers Trust Making Carers Count programme.

Our project is targeted at supporting those caring for loved ones who are experiencing problematic substance misuse.

The toll that substance misuse takes on families is complex, wide reaching and often results in crisis, not only for the person being cared for but also for carers, family and friends.

Our new project seeks to help carers to understand the depth of addiction, expectations around treatment, detox and recovery whilst also creating choices for carers in managing their caring role and accessing respite and long term support.
