Bespoke training is also available which is developed and organised to suit the needs of the agency and delivered at an appropriate time.


Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Awareness and Support

360˚ are championing FASD awareness in Bolton.

Maternal drinking can have a serious impact for a child or young person leaving them with long term behavioural and learning difficulties.

We are committed to raising awareness of the issues faced by children and young people who have a diagnosis of FASD; we can provide training and support staff with strategies that may help in the classroom.

We provide one-to-one support to adopters, foster carers and schools where a child has a diagnosis of FASD.



360˚ provides consultation and support via email, over the phone or face to face regarding any drug or alcohol concerns.

This may include advice about the best approaches in relation to a concern about a young person, a specific question about a substance or supporting a young person through referral to the service.

This is available to young people, families and workers.

You can contact us on tel: 01204 337330 or by emailing for more information or support.
