Martin Docherty-Hughes, MP for West Dunbartonshire, has welcomed the success of a community-based addictions charity in securing an award of National Lottery funding.

The Alternatives Community Recovery Project, which provides support and counselling to families in West Dunbartonshire affected by drug-related problems, has been successful in applying for £96,000 from the Big Lottery Fund Scotland.

The funding has been awarded to support the charity’s addiction support services across Dumbarton, Clydebank and the Vale of Leven. The group will work with employers, training and volunteering providers to identify pathways into positive destinations and support people recovering from drug-related problems. 

Martin Docherty-Hughes MP said: 

“Alternatives West Dunbartonshire is a community-based addictions charity which for over 20 years has been working to transform the lives of families affected by drug-related problems.

“It’s great to see this important work recognised and I congratulate everyone involved with the group for their efforts in securing £96,000 of National Lottery funding.

“The Big Lottery Fund Scotland offers a number funding opportunities to help put very worthwhile local community projects into action. I would encourage any charities and community groups in West Dunbartonshire to get in touch and find out about the support available.”
