Funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, has helped DrugFAM to scale up activities to meet national demand for our services. Since receiving this grant in October 2020, we have helped 940 people across all our services, of whom 654 contacted us for the first time. Six new volunteers have started work on our telephone Helpline. Recent grant activities include the recruitment of three new Support Workers, and the implementation of our new telephone system.
We at DrugFAM are privileged that we can continue to support our community of families in need throughout the Coronavirus crisis. Thank you very much to the Government for making this possible.
