The Family Recovery Initiative Fund
About this fund
Its aim is to improve the wellbeing of family members affected by someone else’s substance misuse. Well-being is improved by social inclusion, because people connect with other people, can participate in group activities, and can access support. It is funded by the Scottish Government Substance Misuse Unit.
The fund can support a variety of activities including set up costs, running costs, training, events, marketing, travel, activities and networking.
Fund award sizes: maximum: £1,500
