    The Family Recovery Initiative Fund (FRIF) offers one-off grants of up to £5,000 to groups that support families affected by alcohol and drugs in Scotland.
    The aim of FRIF is to improve the wellbeing of family members affected by someone else’s harmful substance use based on creating opportunities for people to connect with other people through group activities and- if required- access further support (with this group or through services).
    The FRIF is funded by the Scottish Government Drugs Policy Unit and is supported and managed by Scottish Families.
    What can the funding support?
    The following is a range of examples of what has been funded through the FRIF:

    • weekly rent for premises,
    • travel expenses,
    • digital inclusion,
    • printing costs,
    • kinship carer group activities,
    • art therapy,
    • equine therapy,
    • kinship carer visit to Scottish Parliament,
    • family recovery events, and
    • furnishings for a dedicated family support space in an NHS building.
