Children of Alcoholics week Facebook live-focus on escaping isolation
The Oasis Project will be hosting a Back on Track live Facebook session during COA week on Tuesday 16th February at 8pm with Janet Bell, Oasis Project supporter, and Ceri Walker, child of an alcoholic.
Please join the live discussion to find out more about the effects parental drinking may have on children during lockdown, the issues parents face as their drinking increases, and the support available from Back on Track.
We would like to promote this to families who may be struggling for many reasons during this very difficult time, and also professionals who would like to find out how they can support families when a parent drinks too much, and how to refer onto these services.
Please see details of our next Facebook live for Children Of Alcoholics (COA) Week.
