The Highland’s Alcohol and Drug Partnership (HADP) are working with Scottish Families. They have asked us to help them get a better understanding of what life is like for families affected by alcohol and other drugs.
The project ‘Families Are Recognised and Included’ began in November 2020. We’re keen to talk to as many families as possible. We want to know what might help make things better for those who are struggling alone.
We want to know what matters most to families in the Highlands. We want to get a better understanding of the barriers that stop people from reaching out for help. We know how worrying it can be for families to reach out for support. Many feel ashamed and embarrassed because of stigma.
We want to change that by speaking to as many families and the services already in contact with families. This will help us reach those who need help sooner.
The project is open to any families living in the Highlands affected by someone else’s alcohol or other drug use. If you or someone you know would like to speak to us or join the group leading this work please get in touch with John Holleran firstname.lastname@example.org.
