There are many reasons that you want to or feel the need to support someone who has an alcohol problem. You may find yourself in the position of having to care for someone with an alcohol problem. A partner, husband, wife or other family member. It could even be a close friend. Sometimes the person that you want to help doesn’t want to be helped. Whatever situation you may be facing we understand that you may be finding it difficult to understand and hard to cope. This maybe making things difficult in your life. TCA offer a counselling service that you can use even though you aren’t the one abusing alcohol.
There are lots of ways that you can help to support TCA and the work that we do.
You may be in a position to help someone you know, your partner, a family member or a close friend, that is dealing with alcohol related problems. You can seek support from TCA to enable you to begin helping this person. You can contact TCA and arrange an appointment with a counsellor to discuss your concerns.
There are many opportunities to be involved as a volunteer in many aspects of TCAs work and not just in the areas that might immediately spring to mind. Help with administration, marketing and fundraising is needed just as much as working directly with people accessing TCAs services. We wouldn’t be where we are without the support of our many dedicated volunteers.
TCA are a charity and we rely on the generous support of various trusts, local councils, fundraising and donations. If you would like to support TCA by making a donation or organising a fundraising event please do get in touch and visit our Donating page.
We rely on a large team of dedicated volunteers to support our work and activities. Opportunities range from administration, group facilitation, counselling, mentoring and working with our Safe Zone bus team. If you are interested in volunteering, we offer an excellent standard of training and support for all of our roles.
