Older People, Drugs and Alcohol Project

Are you an older person (65+) in London who… 

  • feels supporting your partner is made harder by their drinking, medication or drug use?
  • supports an adult child who has problems with alcohol or drugs?
  • looks after your grandchildren because their own parents cannot due to their drug or alcohol use?

…Then Adfam want to hear from you!

 Adfam is the national organisation working to improve support for families affected by drug and alcohol use.

They are running an exciting new project with people aged 65 or over who support someone due to substance use.

The next meetings will be held on Thursday 25 June and Friday 31 July at AGE UK London Office (Elephant and Castle) 11.00 – 2.30pm.

 Lunch will be provided and travel expenses reimbursed.

The feedback they receive from wheelchair users and carers will help them shape a better wheelchairs service.
