“I think you need to show someone what help there is: Understanding parental alcohol misuse at a local level

Children’s Commissioner, October 2014

This study was commissioned to investigate gaps in knowledge highlighted through Silent Voices (Adamson and Templeton, 2012), a review into supporting children and young people affected by parental alcohol misuse. The present study engaged with three local areas in order to learn about the challenges and the ways forward for improvements in meeting the needs of children and young people.  The project aims to identify and promote good practice in response to the needs of affected children and their families, with key questions as to how local areas can discover the extent and need among children and young people and how services, including universal provision, can best respond.
