Up to three million of the UK’s children live in homes where their parents or other adults have problems with alcohol and/or drugs. These children are seven times more likely to experience problems in later life with addiction or other mental health issues.

Action on Addiction’s M-PACT programme (Moving Parents and Children Together) enables children to talk about their feelings and experiences with their parents in a safe and protected environment.

M-PACT comprises 10 sessions followed by a reunion which is held three months after the end of the programme.

M-PACT is now being delivered across England, Wales and the Republic of Ireland and, thanks to joint funding from Comic Relief and The Royal Foundation M-PACT is now being delivered in partnership with Place2Be in schools.

M-PACT has also been piloted at HM Prisons Parc, Birmingham, Humber, and Styal.
