Motiv8 is an island charity with services dedicated to supporting children and young people affected by someone else’s alcohol use, drug use or gambling. Support comes in many different ways; through talking, listening, creating, playing, using imagination and many more.

All support is free, non-judgemental and confidential.

With the current restrictions in place, support and appointments are offered via telephone, text, email and Zoom (video calls). It is important that children and young people are able to pick the method that they are most comfortable with. Zoom and telephone appointments can be pre-arranged. The phone lines are operated from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. Emails are monitored regularly within these times and we aim to respond to emails within 1-2 working days.

For further information regarding Motiv8, please feel free to read their booklet below containing key support sites, advice, and information on how to keep safe. The activities may be useful for any student who is struggling, not just those with concerns relating to alcohol, drug use or gambling.
