Marsh Brokers Ltd
As part its Corporate Social Responsibility programme, Marsh sponsors eight national charities under the theme of 'People and Communities at Risk'. One such project is Addactions 'Breaking the Cycle' programme which funds Dilly, a Breaking the Cycle worker in Tower Hamlets who helps families of people with drug and alcohol problems. The project is innovative, practical, and most importantly it works. Katy Tarplett, Marsh Ltd
Breaking the Cycle
1.3 million children have a parent who is a drug addict or alcoholic. For these children, drug and alcohol problems become all too familiar, and growing up in such situations means they are seven times more likely to become addicted themselves. Unlike other drug services which tend to focus on the person with the addiction, Breaking the Cycle supports the whole family.
