Substance Use Project

Our Substance Use Project gives support to young people affected by their own, or their parents’ substance use – substances could be drugs or alcohol.

We work in Portobello/Craigmillar, Liberton/Gilmerton and South West Edinburgh.  

Young people who are experiencing any of these difficulties with substance use, can be referred for one-to-one support, or group work. Or young people can refer themselves. We can also provide training to workers who want to learn more about how to support young people in this situation.

This project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund, Comic Relief and Lloyds Partnership Drugs Initiative (PDI).
