Back to Support

Al-Anon Family Groups offer free and inclusive meetings for the benefit of the relatives and friends of drinkers. Al-Anon members provide one another with mutual support, by sharing experiences and talking.

How to contact

Where to go

Available throughout South Cambridgeshire District
UK

Al-Anon provide meetings across Cambridgeshire & Peterborough. In South Cambridgeshire the nearest meeting place is in Cambridge – check the website for dates, times and the location. The helpline is available for anyone, everywhere.

Whatever your relationship with the drinker, you will find other people who have similar stories to tell. You will realise that you are not alone. Listening to the shared experiences of others may help you find the confidence you need to deal with the effects of someone else’s drinking. You will find it is possible to rediscover happiness, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.

Your anonymity is protected by using first names only. You will not be asked to reveal your surname or any other details about your identity or that of the drinker. Anything discussed within an Al-Anon meeting is treated as confidential, including your presence at the meeting.

Al-Anon meetings are  not therapy groups – you won’t be offered counselling or advice.

Al-Anon is not a religious organisation and welcomes people of all faiths and none, treating everyone as equals.

If you are concerned about your own drinking, visit the webpage for Alcoholics Anonymous to find out what you can access in South Cambs.

Al-Anon meetings and the helpline are free.

Al-Anon accept donations from members towards running costs and literature. You only need to give what you can afford.
