Welcome to our blog, where we dive into the depths of our impactful campaign, Hidden in Plain Sight. This experience-driven public campaign harnesses the power, insight, and experiences of individuals in recovery from alcohol addiction to promote change and inspire positive transformations. At the heart of our mission is shedding light on the often-overlooked aspect of alcohol addiction—the individuals silently suffering without seeking help. Join us as we raise awareness, challenge perceptions, and drive change in our community.

Unveiling the Hidden Harm:

Hidden in Plain Sight aims to raise awareness about the hidden harm caused by alcohol misuse. We believe in highlighting the stark realities of alcohol addiction and emphasising the critical need for individuals to access professional alcohol services. Our campaign’s core objective is to challenge, educate, and inspire individuals to make positive changes in their lives.

The Role of Volunteers:

Our dedicated volunteers play a pivotal role in every aspect of the campaign, from start to finish. These passionate individuals, who have experienced the impact of alcohol firsthand, bring their unique insights and personal journeys to the forefront. Through their involvement, they help create a compelling short film that captures the essence of their stories, struggles, and triumphs. This powerful film will be showcased at the prestigious VUE cinema in Preston, perfectly aligned with Alcohol Awareness Week, to maximize its impact and reach.

Driving Urgency for Change:

One of our primary goals is to shed light on the alarming numbers and trends associated with individuals who do not seek help for their alcohol misuse. By highlighting these statistics, we aim to ignite a sense of urgency and spark conversations that will drive change within our community. We firmly believe that by breaking down barriers, challenging perceptions, and fostering understanding, we can empower individuals to seek professional support and ultimately transform their lives.
