Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training – CRAFT

PROPS North East, a support and family intervention service for carers of substance users has been delivering CRAFT – Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training – to carers since 2009. We have just completed an evaluation of CRAFT which looks at its effectiveness at increasing the well being and fortitude of carers and getting reluctant users into treatment.

"Barefoot did a fantatsic job of our evaluation. In particular, their approach to working with our service users was very impressive. The evaluation has answered many of our questions, but also asked us more, which gives us a great opportunity for the future."

Jayne Butler, Manager, The Comfrey Project

"As an organisation we felt that Barefoot did an excellent job of listening and understanding the needs of our review... We were thrilled with the final report; as well as being a very good read, the presentation and quality was excellent."

Cath Carnaby, Manager, Women's Health Advice Centre

"I am pleased with the honesty and thoroughness with which he (Christopher) dealt with the project. Thanks to the evaluation we now have a number of questions answered and a clear way forward."
