Making It Happen

8 Jun 2017

Today we are excited to launch Making It Happen, our guidance covering how to ensure the needs of families affected by drugs and alcohol are met.

Making It Happen brings together Adfam’s 30+ years of experience in family support in a best practice guide aimed at commissioners and service managers. In consultation with family members, practitioners and commissioners around the country we have identified the key components and characteristics of good support for families and carers affected by substance use. The document builds on our 2015 ‘Why Invest’ resource, to provide a practical jargon-free guide to developing effective family support provision in line with evidence and best practice.
