Additional help for those affected by substance misuse

A CHARITY which supports those affected by substance misuse, has secured funding to provide additional services for three years.

Action for Change plans to increase the services offered to carers and significant others of substance misusers, after being awarded a contract by East Sussex County Council.

An open access advice and information service is to be provided at 18 venues throughout East Sussex, and carers are to be offered one-to-one counselling or group work.

For a full list of venues visit or call on 0300 111 2470.

Referrals are welcome from any agency or group. Those working with someone who might benefit from the expertise that Action for Change can offer can call 0300 111 2470 or go to
