Re-solv Scotland

Re-Solv Scotland

Re-Solv is the only expert agency for VSA working across Scotland.

Children, Young People and Families Early Intervention Fund

From April 2016-2019 Re-Solv is funded by the Scottish Government to continue our core work nationally.

This will allow us to raise awareness of VSA, train professionals in a wide range of agencies about VSA and to provide early intervention and support for children, young people and families affected by VSA.  Our aims in Scotland are to:

  1. Reduce harm and prevent deaths from VSA and other ‘legal highs’
  1. Raise awareness of VSA among young people, their parents/carers, relevant services and policy makers.
  1. Boost young people’s resilience to prevent them turning to VSA or other substances.
  1. Increase capacity for all stakeholders so equality of access to skilled VSA services/support is the same as for illicit drugs.

In our work, Re-Solv recognises and raises awareness of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and children’s rights (UNCRC).

Third Sector Early Intervention Fund

In March 2016, Re-Solv completed a three year project, funded by the Scottish Government, focusing on intervention work with children and families.

VSA E-Learning Resource

This e-learning resource for the Alcohol and Drug Partnership workforce was developed with funding from the Scottish Government and with support from NHS Scotland. Its goal is to increase professionals’ knowledge of VSA, enabling it to be more readily integrated into their service delivery.
