parental substance misuse
The Aberlour Glasgow Bridges service was set up in Possilpark in North East Glasgow in June 2008, with initial funding for three years. It works with families affected by parental substance misuse.
The aim of the service was to develop and deliver interventions with children and parents to improve children's educational, health and well-being outcomes. The service is still in operation, at least until September 2012, with continued funding from Inspiring Scotland Early Years monies, with a slightly different remit.

What is the wellbeing web?
In 2011, Angus Council produced the wellbeing web. The wellbeing web is an interactive tool designed to facilitate an engaging and positive process to measure outcomes with children and adults. The wellbeing web is used to capture specific outcomes, and for those receiving support to recognise where they are, where they would like to be, and what steps they need to take to get there.
IRISS held the launch of its Leading for Outcomes series, which is designed to support teams towards an outcomes-focused approach to service provision on the 24th of June 2011.
