Dear friends,

In case you missed it, I wanted to share with you some of the BBC Newsbeat coverage on children of alcoholics.

BBC Newsbeat were very kind to cover our campaign launch here in Parliament. Newsbeat were contacted by so many people during the coverage of the campaign launch that they decided to run a special programme dedicated entirely to children of alcoholics. You can listen to the programme here.

You can also read child of an alcoholic Charlotte’s touching story here.

BBC Newsbeat also covered a group called Alateen which works for children of alcoholics. You can read their coverage of the group here.

Once again I’d like to thank Newsbeat for covering this important campaign.

Best,

Liam
