COAP in Schools



PLEASE NOTE: our schools work has currently been put on hold till further notice. We are still accepting enquiries about our schools work. 

Schools helping children to recognise the problem of parental addiction exists 

We visit schools holding assembly talks and 1 hour workshops, raising awareness of parental and family addiction that affects estimates of seven million young people in the UK. In 2012 our lead schools outreach volunteer Giselle  reached 2,000 young people from year 7 to year 10 and Sixth form in Kent.

We have received positive feedback from both pupils and teachers; please see a selection of wonderful quotes below:


 ‘The workshop was particularly interesting – I found the workshop an informative experience.’

 'I found the workshop interesting and factual. It made me feel like I was the person suffering. The activities were really good. I have definitely learnt alot! Thank you"


'I thought it was interesting to see how it affects other people and not just the person who is addicted.'

 'It's changed my understanding of the effects of alcohol.'


'I found out a lot from the workshop about how children of addicts feel.'

'I found this workshop powerful and moving'


'It made me understand how we should all try and help each other'

'I think the charity is amazing, thank you!'......very encouraging!'
