The Big Cold Turkey Foundation was set up to help support youth who are at risk of suffering – either from their own addictions, or from the addictions of those close to them. As well as directly supporting individuals and families, The Big Cold Turkey Foundation also invests in other programmes and initiatives concerned with youth at risk, or in recovery from drugs and alcohol.
Many young people are affected by parental and family drug and alcohol abuse and other additions. The Big Cold Turkey aims to offer young people respite from such situations by funding recreational pursuits, such as holiday clubs and days out, swimming lessons, music lessons, Guide and Scout groups, Boys and Girls Brigades and school trips.
The Big Cold Turkey Foundation is keen to raise awareness around the effects of drug and alcohol abuse and other addictions. By giving tweens, teens and young adults an understanding of the nature and impact of addiction we can encourage them to exercise caution around potentially harmful behaviours and substances.

The effects of drug and alcohol abuse and other addictions are far-reaching. Children in families where one or both parents are addicts are affected in a number of ways from neglect to poverty. School holidays can be a particularly stressful time for parents and children and days out, funded by The Big Cold Turkey Foundation, can provide a welcome break and memorable time between parents and children.
