Alcohol Action Ireland

(AAI) is a non-governmental organisation that acts as an expert, independent voice for policy change on alcohol-related issues.

Silent Voices

is an initiative of AAI whose primary objectives are:

  • To raise awareness about the long-term harm and distress including trauma caused to children and adult children affected by Parental Alcohol Misuse (PAM)
  • To inform service providers about the long term consequences which can impede growth and development in children arising from living with PAM
  • To advocate for enhancement of existing services so that no child affected by PAM is left unsupported – at present there are no dedicated services for adult children.
