Working together to support children affected by parental alcohol misuse.

Lots of adults drink alcohol, but in some families the adult’s drinking can make things difficult at home and can cause problems and worries for their children. With funding from the Department of Health and Social Care, CAPE is a Children’s Society project upskilling workers in contact with Children of Alcohol Dependent Parents (CADeP).


The aim of the session is to equip you with knowledge and confidence, ensuring that there is no ‘wrong door’ and that a child or young person will always receive an appropriate response when they raise concerns. 


Awareness sessions will cover:

  • Why we need to address parental alcohol misuse
  • The impact of parental alcohol misuse upon children and families
  • Having the conversation - Judgement & Fear
  • Risk, Resilience & Protective Factors
  • Models of Support
  • Practice resources
