We would like to take this opportunity to inform you that Young Addaction Lancashire is delivering an exciting new project called Future Foundations.
The Future Foundations project has been commissioned by the Department for Health and Social Care in Partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions until March 2020 to support children of alcohol dependant parents/carers.
There are three components to Future Foundations;
We will be providing training to professionals aimed to increase knowledge, skills and confidence in how to identify and support children of alcohol dependant parents.
Animate – 8
Working with families in a group setting using an art based approach aimed at improving communication and relationships, where one or more parents have problematic alcohol use.
Skills for Change
For 11-19 year olds. 5 hours of group work sessions usually delivered in a school setting. Aims to support young people to build resilience and improve their emotional wellbeing and self esteem, thereby lowering their own risk of alcohol misuse.
Please find attached our leaflets. Feel free to give us a call if you think you have a family that would benefit from our Animate programme, or you would like extra information about our Future Foundations project or professionals training.
We would be very happy to attend one of your team meetings to provide further information about our service and what we offer.
