Evaluation Case Study - Escape Family Support

Established in Blyth in 1995, Escape Family Support (Escape) is a county-wide drug and alcohol misuse charity that aims to reach out to local communities by developing hubs of support for substance misusers, carers, families and friends. 


The service is committed to providing a range of high quality services associated with substance misuse and by working in partnership with others to offer the fullest possible range of holistic, complementary and diversionary services. In spring 2014 bait co-commissioned a project in partnership with Escape to enable service users to experience a range of arts activities delivered by freelance artists and covering a range of art forms. The success of these pilot art taster sessions encouraged bait and Escape to establish a longer-term artist residency to be delivered from the newly opened Susan Kennedy Centre in Ashington. The project commenced in November 2014 and was delivered through fortnightly sessions over a six month period.
