Connecting Families

We are celebrating families across Scotland this autumn through 10 free events! With local partners, families, and the help of Big Lottery Fund, we are co-hosting Connecting Families. It’s all about fun, friendship, and connecting to community.

We asked families what matters to them and what we could do together about it. Families talked to us about the impact of social contact and connections with others in the same situation:

 ‘Many people are just completely disconnected.’

‘People in addiction – including families – their voice is very, very small.’

‘[We need] more community spirit being created and more connections between people.’

‘Linking different communities is important, we are the only family support group in the area.’
