Our children and family services
Some Space - Camden
Some Space helps Camden residents 18 and over who are affected by someone else's drug or alcohol use. This specialist service helps family members, partners or friends to regain control over their own life, whether or not the drug or alcohol user is also receiving help.
Explore Family - Nottingham
The team at Explore Family provides a range of support options in order to reduce the impact of substance use and support a whole family approach to recovery.
The Alcohol Service - London
The Family and Carer Service provides advice and support to family members, friends, and carers of individuals experiencing problems with alcohol. This includes one-to-one support sessions, wellbeing workshops and counselling.
ResoLUTiONs - Luton
The Family, Friends and Carers Service provides information, advice and support to anyone who is concerned or affected by somebody else’s drug and alcohol use in the Luton area.
The person who is using drugs or alcohol does not have to be in treatment with ResoLUTiONs for you to receive support. The team offers sessions on a 1 to 1 basis covering the five steps family intervention. If needed, referrals can also be made to their counselling service or to partnership agencies.
Cardiff Children & Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing Service (EWS)
This service provides brief, solution-focused interventions based on CBT to promote good mental health, self-esteem and emotional wellbeing in young people aged 9-17 who live in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. The aim is to provide timely, early-interventions for young people to avoid their emotional wellbeing concerns escalating to the point of needing more specialist support at a later date (such as referral to CAMHS).
The service addresses physical health issues, such as sleep, nutrition and exercise, where these impact on emotional wellbeing. We also work with young people exhibiting risk behaviours such as offending, substance use and sexual activity.
The service is delivered in partnership with other agencies to ensure young people receive the support they need, from the right service, at the right time.
Speak Out! - East Sussex Children & Young People’s Advocacy & Independent Visiting Service
The East Sussex Advocacy and Independent Visiting Service gives a confident voice to children and young people, equipping them with the skills to demand the very best care from services, and to hold services to account when care provision falls short. Independent Visitors offer young people the support of a trusted adult and the opportunity to take part in fun activities.
The service is provided in partnership with Sova, the University of Sussex and the University of Chichester.
