Making a Difference to Families in North Lincolnshire by tackling ‘Hidden Harm’

Voluntary Action North Lincolnshire is delighted to announce the success of a £315K bid application to the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund. This will deliver an innovative and significant three year ‘Hidden Harm’ project to families in North Lincolnshire.

The project will develop and deliver a holistic package of support for families affected by substance misuse and addiction. The programme will be independent but supported by statutory and non statutory services.

The project has been developed with people in our community at its heart. We have listened closely to people’s concerns, their needs and what has helped people maintain their recovery. Together we have put together a program that will offer the support people need, when they need it.

The Hidden Harm team will include trained volunteers and will deliver interventions that break the cycle of attitudes, behaviours and harm that can become embedded through families, limiting lives and aspiration.

The programme will aim to give people the resource to change attitudes and behaviours through training, coaching and mentoring. We will work closely with other agencies whom have all contributed to the success of the bid.  Our thanks to North Lincolnshire Council Safer Neighbourhoods Team, Agencia, CRI Step Forwards and Delta.
