COAP - Children Of Addicted Parents & People

Picture
COAP is a relatively new charity, founded by Emma Spiegler, and set up following her own experiences.  COAP has a team of roughly 40 volunteers including a counsellor, a child protection advisor and a small army of mentors who are, like me, trying to use their own experiences to help others.

COAP was finally awarded charity status in February 2011 (Registration Number Pending) and the Lincoln To London Sponsored Walk will help them to expand to offer their services on a wider scale and help more vulnerable young people all over the UK.

NACOA - National Association for Children of Alcoholics

Picture
NACOA 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 alcohol-dependent parents of all ages, many of whose problems only become apparent in adulthood.

NACOA's main aims are:  To offer information, advice and support to children of alcohol-dependent parents, to reach professionals who work with these children, to raise the profile of children of alcohol-dependent parents in the public consciousness and to promote research into the particular problems faced by those who grew up with parental alcoholism and the prevention of alcoholism developing in this vulnerable group of young children.

NACOA has over 300 volunteers with many areas of expertise, and patrons include, amongst others, Mr Tony Adams OBE, Mr Callum Best and Miss Elle Macpherson.
