Funding for such groups is a matter for decision locally, primarily by local organisations such as local authorities and health boards. A number of Social Inclusion Partnerships are also providing help and support to families of drug misusers from the £2 million we announced for local drug misuse work in January.

Within the £100 million drug funding package announced recently, £21 million is for young people and families. Some of this will be used for supporting the families of drug misusers. Details have still to be decided.
