Families Out Loud offers something very rare. That rarity is to be found in the people who hold the charity and its service to families journeying with addiction. Rather than hiding issues in a shadowy corner, Families Out Loud lovingly and skilfully enable issues to be raised, and words to be spoken. In my view, they have the richest of things – a depth of compassion and knowledge that arises out of experience.

I offer my total support for this unique charity in its support of families struggling to both survive and make sense of the pathways of addiction. They are a family in its truest sense – being there when the going gets tough, offering the kindness and firmness that helps each other to become more of who we are.
