parental role

Cheryl Burgess, Research Fellow at the School of Applied Social Science, University of Stirling; and Sandra Sweeten, Aberlour Glasgow Bridges Service Manager

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.
