The National Association for Children of Alcoholics

Nacoa (The National Association for Children of Alcoholics) is a registered charity (No. 1009143), founded in 1990 to address the needs of children growing up in families where one or both parents suffer from alcoholism or a similar addictive problem. This includes children of all ages, many of whose problems only become apparent in adulthood.

Nacoa has four broad aims:

  • To offer information, advice and support to children of alcohol-dependent parents
  • To reach professionals who work with them
  • To raise their profile in the public consciousness
  • To promote research into the problems they face and the prevention of alcoholism developing in this vulnerable group

You are not alone; there are many young people experiencing similar problems. When a parent has a drink problem, it affects the whole family, and can be especially difficult for children and young people. If you are a child affected by your mum or dad’s drinking, we are here to help offer you support - see our help and support page
