Camilla Tominey is a COA campaigner and associate editor at The Telegraph. As a journalist at the Sunday Express and now The Telegraph, she has put pressure on the government to listen to the demands of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Children of Alcoholics. She has often achieved that by speaking out about her own story.

“I wish Nacoa had been around when I was growing up with an alcoholic mother. Just to be able to speak to people who could understand how unsettling it was as a child to see someone you loved so much slowly destroying themselves.”

“Alcoholism breeds secrecy, but we know that only by talking through what we are experiencing at home, can we be helped through it. Nacoa provides a confidential listening ear to children of alcoholics both young and old. It is never too late to discuss the effect parental drinking has had on your life. Nacoa is here to help. That is why I am so proud to be a patron of this fantastic charity.”
