Comic Relief has supported work around young people and alcohol for many years and now wants to fund a number of projects across England for up to three years that are supporting children and young people living in families where there is problematic parental drinking. Successful organisations will have the capacity to grow and expand existing work and have a clear understanding of strategic developments in this area and be able to show how the additional work will increase our understanding around effective models of intervention. We are looking to fund either direct work with children and young people or family based models that aim to reduce the risk to children and young people and help improve the protective factors that increase their resilience.
