National Association for Children of Alcoholics

An estimated 1 million children in the UK are living with a parent whose drinking is a problem.The National Association for Children of Alcoholics provides support for children living with an
alcohol dependent parent, who has neither acknowledged nor sought help for their drinking.The core of our work is a free, confidential helpline that aims to provide children with information and advice.


For many children, a Nacoa volunteer will be the first person they have told about what is happening at home.We help them to understand that it's okay to talk about the problem and explore ways that they can take care of themselves.Nacoa also aims to support the professionals working with children by offering training about how to talk to them about parental drinking and putting them in touch with local services.The charity relies on trained volunteers to staff the helpline and respond to children in need of support.

 

In 2012 Nacoa was extremely proud to receive the Queens Award for Voluntary Service,
a testament to the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. Donations to the Nacoa Radio 4 Appeal will help ensure that we continue to pick up the phone
to children who otherwise would have nowhere to turn.
