In classrooms across the UK 1 in 5 children are carrying the burden of someone else’s drinking. To support teaching staff and other professionals with some of the issues they may face, Nacoa has produced two booklets which look at identifying children affected by a parent’s drinking, how alcohol affects the family, frequently experienced issues, breaking the cycle and guidelines for teachers. The resources emphasise that the key to helping is to be able to recognise the nature of the child's family life.
