What can we offer?

We have worked with families and organisations that help and support families for over fifteen years. With this we have gained invaluable input from family members to provide training to the alcohol, drug, and wider workforce to have individuals living with someone else’s alcohol or drug use recognised and supported.

We can tailor our training sessions to what your organisation is looking for, such as:

  • A short presentation or briefing
  • A half-day interactive workshop
  • A bespoke training session over one or more days commissioned by your organisation.

Training Courses

We offer training on working with families affected by alcohol and drugs, families in recovery, bereavement through drug-related or alcohol-related death, asset-based community development – and other issues. All of our courses are tailored to ensure you receive the best and most relevant training available. Full information on our courses can be found in our programme below:

Family Inclusive Practice

What is Family Inclusive Practice?

Family Inclusive Practice encourages family members and friends and staff to work together. This would mean staff would recognise that a family member or friend can have a positive influence in the treatment of an individual. Family members and friends are often the ones that have the best knowledge of the person – they are the ones that support and keep them safe. Family inclusive practice promotes family members and friends to be involved and work with practitioners together.

Including family inclusive practice in the workplace will also mean staff can understand and work together to make sure a member of staff is supported. Staff can understand the challenges a colleague may be facing if living with someone else’s alcohol or drug problem and support them and make sure their health and wellbeing is okay.

Family inclusive practice means:

  • Families and professionals work together to provide the best support and treatment for the individuals they care for.
  • Family members, individuals and staff learn and work together.
  • Individuals are helped to get into treatment and the best possible support for them.
  • Everyone’s experiences and knowledge are respected.
