We have a special family service for people impacted by parental substance misuse, also known as PIPS. We provide support to young people up to the age of 18 who are affected by someone’s drug or alcohol use.

What can the PIPS Service offer me?

Our PIPS Service offers a range of support and activities which aim to help young people to:

  • Develop and access support networks
  • Get support in understanding addiction and appropriate education around drugs and alcohol
  • Look at hopes and wishes for the future
  • Keep safe
  • Understand and manage emotions/feelings

Who can access the PIPS Service?

This service is available to anyone living in Tameside, even if the person you are concerned about is not accessing support or treatment for their drug or alcohol use. We accept referrals from anyone including family members, professionals or direct from the client themselves.

We do ask that the young person has agreed for the referral to be made. 

Support available includes:

  • One-2-one support
  • Signposting and onward referrals
  • Diversionary and skill building activities   
  • Working closely with other professionals
