COA Week is a campaign led by Nacoa (The National Association for Children of Alcoholics) 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.
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.
Children of Alcoholics Week is celebrated internationally each year during the week in which Valentine’s Day falls. There are organisations holding COA Week activities in USA, Germany, Poland, Sweden and Slovenia. For more information read the European COA Week press release.
