Raising awareness of children affected by parental alcohol problems. We want everyone to know they are not alone and help and support is available.
About-Children of Alcoholics Week 10-16 February 2019
COA Week is a campaign to raise awareness of children affected by parental alcohol problems.
Imagine coming home from school and dreading what you might find. Imagine having no friends because you’re too embarrassed to bring them home in case Mum or Dad are drunk, or worse. Imagine living in a home full of fear and having no one to turn to because everyone denies there’s a problem.
COA Week is celebrated internationally each year during the week in which Valentine’s Day falls.
In the UK, COA Week is led by the charity Nacoa who provide year-round support. Please join us in our 10th year celebrating COA Week in the UK. Together we can increase awareness of this hidden problem and the support available. Find out how you can help children of all ages know they are not alone.
There are organisations holding COA Week activities in USA, Germany, India, Sweden, Sloveniaand SwitzerlandAll News Articles
