Supporting the children of alcohol dependent parents - New website for practitioners

As part of the government’s programme to support children of alcohol dependent parents DHSC have funded the Children’s Society to develop a website aimed at practitioners and you may want to make services in your area aware of the site.  We have received the following from the Children’s Society which provides a little more detail:

The site provides a mix of digital support & training resources, awareness raising sessions and more formalised training events.  It is populated with practitioner focused resources for those providing immediate support to affected young people and also links to organisations that can provide tailored support.

The functionality of the website allows professionals to opt-in to receive communication via the subscription function and we will be developing communities of interest using current networks, regional training workshops and face-to-face engagement. The subscription function will support these communities through regular and targeted mailing aligned to regional activity, project advances and upcoming dates for our training workshops.
