Free Alcohol Focus Scotland training for early years and primary education staff/ students across the Hebrides

Free training is currently available through the Outer Hebrides ADP on two alcohol resources that are widely used in Scotland – ‘Rory’ and ‘Oh Lila’!

Alcohol Focus Scotland training is available to early years and primary education staff to help build resilience and protective factors in young children, to help develop their social skills and encouraging them to communicate, as well as helping children to understand the feelings they might experience when living with someone who has an alcohol problem.

This training is available to all pre-school and primary school workers, as well as students who intend on working with children in the future. These skills are particularly helpful for children who are living with a problem drinking parent.

The Oh Lila! resource pack and training is suitable for use by nurseries and any organisation/service working with pre-school children and families.

The Rory resource pack and training is suitable for use by primary schools and any organisation/service working with primary school children and families.

Training is being offered in Stornoway, Uist and Barra throughout September.
