Service description:
Family Support Link aims to reduce the physical, psychological and emotional harm caused to families living with, or caring for someone who is addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, empowering them to improve their lives. Particular emphasis is place on those we have traditionally found difficult to engage with, by encouraging a pro-active not re-active approach.
The service provides effective support, counselling, education and early intervention for those families, educates the community in relation to the stigma, social exclusion, isolation and discrimination faced daily, by these families. In addition, it offers awareness and training for professionals. All services provision is Northamptonshire based.
Often forgotten, grandparents are also supported, particularly those who may be left looking after children at a time in their lives when they are less able to cope both physically and emotionally with the impact this may have them. This improves the likelihood of a positive outcome to keep the family unit intact .
The families that we support are diverse, of both genders and all age ranges. In addition they come from all social, economic and ethnic backgrounds.
These interventions will empower families, increase knowledge and understanding, change attitudes, support community cohesion and promote engagement with children and young people.
