Celebrating Families Week

10th – 16th June 2024

Our Celebrating Families Week is dedicated to families affected by alcohol and drugs across the country. The week highlights the challenges families face and champions their love and power.

Join us and together we can break the stigma, encourage open conversations, and be a beacon of hope to those facing a challenging and complex part of life.

We invite you to share our messages, attend an event, and participate in conversations that provide comfort and support for families.

Once you register to take part in the awareness week, we’ll send you updates on events and big moments, and a few weeks before launch, we’ll send you a resource pack full of information for families, social media posts, posters, leaflets, and much more. This can be either a digital pack or we can send you one in the post (limited supply on a first-come first-served basis). We will send the resource packs out a few weeks before the launch date of June 10th.

Let’s create a supportive space for families affected by alcohol and drugs.

If you have any questions or want to share ideas, please email Rebecca on our team rebecca@sfad.org.uk

Fill the Blanks

Join us in Celebrating Families Week with this activity of filling the blanks. Think about your relationships with your loved one and share the achievements and positives of them. Family members often forget to look after themselves, so take this time to focus on yourself.

We will be doing this activity both online and in our support services and will collate all responses and include them in a little celebratory album (with music!)

Fill the Blanks

Print and Share

We have created these Fill the Blanks handouts for you to print and share with your family, friends or support group. You are welcome to do this activity on your own and keep your answers safe and to yourself to go back to. And if you’d like to share your answers with us for our final little celebratory album please send them to rebecca@sfad.org.uk.

What to do next

Become a Family Champion
Have you ever wondered how you can get involved and give back to Scottish Families? Could you share your experience to help others? We are looking for family members who would like to give input into our work in a structured way. To gain new skills and new experiences from campaigning to social media, writing and public speaking skills, and be an integral part of our organisation.

Donate Today
Your donations help us to continue our work reaching families across Scotland. Alcohol and drug harm can affect anyone. Despite this, too many families cope alone, isolated due to stigma and secrecy. Scottish Families is where families find support for themselves.
