Fun and interactive course with good group activities to keep you engaged. One of the most enjoyable courses I have been on.

Bespoke training

We can also offer bespoke alcohol training courses. For example, we have been commissioned by South Lanarkshire Council to run a series of courses during 2017/18 on alcohol and older people. We will train around 60 staff working in Sheltered Housing Services to increase their confidence, knowledge and skills in supporting people affected by alcohol.
