Aid for drink problem dads

The Willow Project is running an alcohol awareness course aimed at dads in Wigan and Leigh.

The charity, which usually focuses on women’s drink problems, is this time targeting fathers with children under five and looks at the effects of their drinking on their children. Courses are billed as fun and interesting with lots of tips, tools and coping strategies for making life changes that cut alcohol intake and improve family life.

The course runs on Tuesday evenings in Leigh for six weeks starting May 15. For details ring Carole Johnston on 01942 679300 or 07891 215526.
