Join us for a free Family and Carers’ event at our Women's Centre, 1 Brunswick Square, Gloucester, GL1 1UG on 30th January, 10am-1pm

Need help and advice on addiction? Addicts’ families and friends are no long ignored.

The Nelson Trust is joining forces with other Gloucestershire agencies to reach out to more families who need help with addiction - that's drugs or alcohol.

When people think about the effects of addiction, not a lot of attention is given to their loved one – husband, wife, partner, mother, father, sister, brother, friend. This is an issue that we want to address. So, we’ve joined forces with Turning Point and Carers Gloucestershire to give a lifeline to families. We’re holding a free Family and Carers’ event on Saturday 30th January 2016. This is an opportunity to talk to experts who know how to bring about change for anyone struggling with addiction. So, if you or a loved one need a listening ear, drop in to 1 Brunswick Square, Gloucester, GL1 1UG any time between 10am and 1pm on Saturday 30th January. This could well be a day that changes your life forever. 

‘We’re very pleased to host this event in partnership with Turning Point and Carers Gloucestershire. When someone has an addiction, the family or loved ones feel extremely isolated, often struggling in silence. We want to show that there is support available for these people – they’re not alone. We’re offering a life line and bringing hope in the possibility of change,’ says Louise Walker of the Nelson Trust Family Focus team.

If you need to find a way forward for a loved one or if you're just working out how to overcome addiction, look no further. Perhaps you need a listening ear, or would like to meet others in a similar situation. There’s no need to suffer in silence. Join us at this free Family and Carers’ Market Place event at 1 Brunswick Square, Gloucester, GL1 1UG on 30th January, 10am-1pm. To find out more, please email: or call 01452 397692.
