Embrace was the Alcohol Concern children, families and domestic abuse project, which spent three years developing the Embrace Model within nine adult alcohol services across the country. Funded by the Big Lottery Fund Embrace initially worked with these nine sites to develop a more family-focused approach to their clients and to take account of domestic violence and abuse throughout their work.
