Washington Substance Misuse / Addiction Engagement Event

Launch of Sunderland Carers' Centre's Anti-Stigma Campaign

Workers and organisations in Washington are invited to attend our launch event at

Washington Arts Centre
Tuesday 17th March 2015
12.30pm - 1pm Refreshments
1pm - 2pm Engagement Event

For many people who are supporting a family member and / or friend who have substance misuse or addiction problems, the fear and shame can often stop them from either identifying themselves as having a caring role or accessing any form of support.

Our 'Anti-Stigma' campaign will include resources that you and your organisation can use. These have been designed to help promote to carers and their families the benefits of accessing information, advice and guidance to enable them to be better supported in their caring role.

To book your place at this event please contact Helen McAdam, Carer Locality Lead (Washington), Sunderland Carers' Centre on (0191) 549 3768 or email
