Policy

Scottish Families plays an active role in shaping and influencing policy and practice. We were set up by families themselves who wanted to support each other but also to form a united voice to campaign for recognition and for change.

We are members of a number of expert groups and partnerships, including parliamentary cross-party groups, local and national strategy and service development groups, and advocacy groups.

Through our policy work we aim to:

  • Raise the profile of families affected by alcohol and drugs
  • Ensure families have a strong voice
  • Share learning and evidence
  • Influence changes and improvements in policy and practice
  • Tackle stigma
  • Increase understanding and connections.

You can read our recent policy consultation responses here and read a number of Scottish Families and other useful reports here.
