Nacoa (the National Association for Children of Alcoholics) is a registered charity which addresses 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 these children.
  • To raise their profile in the public consciousness.
  • To promote research into he particular problems faced by those who grow up with parental alcoholism and the prevention of alcoholism developing in this vulnerable group of children.
