Nacoa is collaborating with the Sikh Recovery Network putting on special events at Sikh temples and community centres. This will offer time to share and talk about alcohol harm and its impacts on the family.
This week Nacoa and Sikh Recovery Network will be visiting Birmingham to host a free event in one of the city’s most beautiful temples. All are welcome to attend and join in:

Nacoa’s Widening Access Project
We are seeking to better understand the needs of people in the UK where alcohol problems exist, or have existed, in the family. This is to help us improve our cultural literacy and develop a targeted outreach programme.
If you are someone who grew up in a Punjabi and/or Sikh household, we want to hear about your experiences.
The below questionnaire gives space for you to reflect on how parental alcohol problems may or may not have affected your life. Please respond to the questions in the way you feel best suits you.
All information provided will be treated with strict confidentiality, in line with the Nacoa Promise.
