Protect CGL FACT Families and Carers Group

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to look at and reverse the cuts to the Change Grow & Live (FACT) support Group that was previously delivered at 9 The Drive in Hove. This is in the spirit of safeguarding social services for families of substance users who often have no other support systems. Ring fence employment for the experienced staff members (Support Workers) that have built up a wealth of experience and provided constructive solutions for families.and individuals.

The funding for the building (where sessions took places during weekday mornings and evenings) was withdrawn.

Support to families of substance users has since been reduced to a minimum due to lack of funding. Zoom meetings are being phased out without communication on alternatives.

The service offers psycho-social support and counselling for family members from all corners of the community.

There are unconfirmed suggestions of continuation in some format but this is not guaranteed and we would like this vital community service to be restored to its traditional format.
