One in ten children across Scotland are vulnerable to emotional, physical or verbal abuse because of the way their parents drink.
Research published late last year suggested more than 90,000 young people could be at risk of harm.
Over £1m has been awarded to three organisations who work with families dealing with the consequences of substance misuse and addiction.
