HRH The Duchess of Cambridge becomes patron of Action on Addiction
5th January 2012
Action on Addiction is delighted to announce the patronage of HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.
Action on Addiction is the only UK charity working across the addiction field in research, prevention, treatment, professional workforce development and support for families and children.
Her Royal Highness recently paid a private visit to one of Action on Addiction’s treatment centres and spoke at length to a number of clients about their addiction and personal journeys to recovery.
Chief Executive, Nick Barton, said, “It is a great honour for the Charity that Her Royal Highness has chosen to become our patron. We are very grateful to the Duchess whose support will enable us to keep the issue of addiction in the spotlight. Addiction is a consuming condition that results in a great deal of harm to individuals, families, communities and society as a whole. Yet, it is not always well understood or responded to effectively. We are thrilled that the Duchess will be supporting us in our mission to free people from addiction and its effects.”
