Alcohol and Drugs action
We awarded £2,155 to this project.
Social isolation is already a big problem for those in recovery from substance misuse. ADA provides support to anyone affected by substance misuse, including their families and the wider community. Social distancing has made access to these support services incredibly hard, but this could be made easier with the correct technology and additional training for volunteers.
ADA will provide an online/phone befriending service to support individuals from a distance, on a regular basis. With additional training, volunteers will be able to recognise problem areas and ensure that individuals get the extra support they need.
