Steps to Cope Project

The Steps to Cope Project has been funded by the National Lottery Community Fund (formerly Big Lottery Fund) Impact of Alcohol Fund from 2014-19. The project is a partnership between ASCERT, Barnardo’s NI, The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust and AFInetUK.  Steps to Cope is an intervention for young people aged 11 to 18 affected by parental alcohol/drug misuse (hidden harm) or parental mental health problems.

The project ends in October but, as a legacy they will shortly be launching practical resources for further use across Northern Ireland.  An article on the impact of Steps to Cope has also recently been published in the journal Advances in Mental Health.  Read More and download article….
