Alcohol Awareness

Helen has recently attended an alcohol awareness roadshow provided by Alcoholics Anonymous. We have leaflets, phone numbers etc in the office if you would like information to signpost someone to the AA. Also for Al-Anon which is a support group for family members.

The AA will deliver training(2 hours) to a group of volunteers. If you are interested please email or speak to your coordinator. When we have at least 8 interested we will arrange the training.
