What we do

Holding Families+ Project


Working with children and families of alcohol dependent parents who are in prison

Holding Families+ Project works with children and families of alcohol and substance dependent parents who are in prison. The project works with mothers in HMP Styal and fathers in HMP Forest Bank to provide pre and post release support. We also work with families where the parents are on a community order with Probation. The service is delivered across Rochdale, Bury, Bolton, Salford, Trafford and Blackburn with Darwen.  

The service recognises the multiple and complex needs of such parents, children and families and why alcohol (and other substances) may have been used previously. It aims to improve emotional and mental health and reduce family conflict to improve children and family outcomes in the short term and intergenerationally. Holding Families+ Project is a whole family approach which recognises the differing individual needs and aspirations of all family members.
