Waverley Care

Awarded:   £12,000

Project:  SX Project

Waverley Care will use its third year of SWAF funding to promote the SX National Alcohol Harm Reduction project across Scotland, helping gay and bisexual mean have the confidence to access mainstream services to assist with problematic drinking. 

In addition to counselling, group work and sexual health education which Waverley Care offers, the SX campaign supports alcohol awareness and harm reduction among gay and bisexual men.

Headquartered in Edinburgh, Waverley Care also has a network of offices in Forth Valley, Stirling, Falkirk and Inverness. The charity hopes the funding boost will help them launch public-facing campaigns via digital channels to target marginalised communities across Scotland.
