2018 meetings

The London Families Forum is a quarterly meeting, created after Adfam's London Families Network and The Children Society's Pan London Parental Substance Misuse Forum merged in January 2018. It aims to provide a network of support for family members and family support services to share best practice, influence policy and practice, and integrate families’ needs into drug and alcohol misuse recovery planning, monitoring and decision making.

Attendance: The forum brings together practitioners who work with families affected by a loved one’s drug or alcohol use, drug and alcohol treatment services, volunteers and family members.

Dates and location: Four meetings scheduled across the year, meeting from 10am – 1pm at a venue based near Kings Cross.

Dates for 2018 are:

  • Wednesday 7th February
  • Tuesday 3rd April
  • Wednesday 6th June
  • Wednesday 3rd October


All updates about the work of the London Families Forum will now be provided on the Adfam website. For more information and to register please contact Syeda Hussain.
