Sky Dive for COAP's fundraising page

My page:


I am raising money for the charity COAP (Children of Addicted Parents and People). Their priority is the children affected by addiction whether it is alcohol, drugs , gambling and even an internet addiction. Often when it comes to addiction most charities focus on the addict and it then came to Emma Spiegler’s attention in 2006 that the children needed help too.

COAP provides online message boards for anyone aged between 7-30 to write about parental and family addiction. The trained Mentors and other online members have the chance to reply and offer support. Addiction is a topic that often isn't talked about hence why so many children turn to COAP as it is 100% anonymous.

COAP also does talks to schools to try and gently dissolve the current perception of addiction being such a taboo issue and encourage those who are not affected to have a more sympathetic approach. Counselling is also offered free of service meaning that those who need can get support from the comfort of their own home!

Currently there are over 3,000 messages posted on the message boards which I admit may seem a lot however, it has recently been reported that 7 million young people are affected by parental drinking and drug misuse.

The message is simple: There are children today who need help and gentle encouragement to talk which will lead them to get the vital support that they need.

With your help we can reach more children and reach out to many more young people suffering in silence behind closed doors.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed onto COAP.

Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations!
