The Fragile Childhood programme has been running in Finland since 1986. It offers help to young people and adults who suffer from the adverse effects of parental alcohol use. In this Webinar Minna Ilva will briefly describe its history before discussing its current projects, and what other organisations in countries can take away to possibly replicate in their own countries.


A link to a recording of this AFINet Webinar and the PowerPoint presentation will be available on the AFINet website following this Webinar, as is the case with the previous ones.
