Children’s charity Aberlour will receive a grant of more than £5.5 million over this parliamentary term to develop two Mother and Child Residential Recovery Houses.
The houses will be designed to enable children of women with problematic substance use to stay with their mothers during their recovery. Aberlour’s approach to rehabilitation aims to deliver positive outcomes for women and their children.
The first house developed in partnership with Hillcrest Housing Association will open in Dundee in Autumn 2022. The second house located in Central Scotland will open in 2023. Each house will support four women and their children at any one time.
