The set afloat of the campaign coincides with Addiction Awareness Week, running from 18 to 24 October, which aims to provide a platform to highlight the challenges of addiction, to include with people and families affected, and to raise public awareness.
‘Taking Action on Addiction’ is a long-term campaign which will work to enhance awareness and understanding of addiction, its causes and extent in society to permit more people to ask for and receive help.
Over the last ten years The Duchess’ experience working with addiction charities has helped lay the groundwork for her understanding of the complexities of mental health and has informed much of her work on the early years.
Experiences in early childhood, before the age of five, are proven to have meaningful impact on adult lives, including resilience and the ability to cope with adversity.
The Forward Trust has been helping people break the destructive cycle of addiction and build positive and productive futures since 1991.
The Duchess of Cambridge became Patron of the Forward Trust in June 2021 when the charity merged with Action on Addiction, which was one of Her Royal Highness’ first Patronages in 2012.
