About Outreach Dundee

Aberlour Family Outreach Dundee provides support to families who are struggling to cope as a result of drug and alcohol use within the family. We give children a trusted person they can talk to, while supporting parents to create a safe environment for their children through addressing their dependency and improving parenting confidence.

The Aberlour Family Outreach Dundee worker visited me regularly and she was really friendly. She encouraged me to ask for help when I needed it. She introduced me to other people and got me involved in other services that could help me" – Parent
