Alcohol and Families
Alcohol Awareness Week 13-19th November
Between the 13th – 19th November is Alcohol Awareness Week 2017 and Barca Leeds will be using this as an opportunity to have conversations around harmful drinking and how this can have an affect on family life.
To raise awareness around Alcohol Awareness week we will be:
- Displaying information around alcohol use and parenting; drinking guidelines; information for family members and how and where to access support.
- Delivering ‘Alcohol Awareness’ Sessions with children and young people.
- Promoting Barca’s Family Services that support families affected by alcohol use.
- Providing two weekly drop ins for young people aged 13-19yrs who require confidential advice and guidance (these will take place on Monday 13th November 4:00-5:30 and Sunday 19th November 12:00-2:00 at Barca Leeds, 259 Upper Town Street, Bramley, Leeds LS13 3JT).
Forward Leeds Drug and Alcohol Service will also be providing support across Leeds around alcohol use and the impact on children. For more information on these sessions please see http://www.forwardleeds.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Alcohol-and-Famlies-Poster-1.pdf
