PDF (Impact of parental alcohol misuse)

The wide range of harms that are caused to children, as a result parental alcohol misuse, is known as ‘Hidden Harm’, as the harm is often not publicly visible. This means these children are often not known to the appropriate services and that they suffer harm in a number of important ways that can impede their physical, emotional and social developments.

The questions include: what is the scale of the problem? and What can we do to address Hidden Harm?
