Al-Anon Family Groups UK & Eire is there for anyone whose life is or has been affected by someone else's drinking. Our members provide meetings in all major towns and cities and are committed to being there for you when you need help.
Your anonymity is protected by using first names only. You will not be asked to reveal your surname or any other details about your identity or that of the drinker. Anything discussed within an Al-Anon meeting is treated as confidential, including your presence at the meeting.
We are widespread, with more than 700 groups throughout the UK and Eire alone. If getting to a meeting is not easy for you, you are welcome to join an online meeting.
Al-Anon meetings are free.
Given the recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we wanted to reassure you that Al-Anon Family Groups is still available to provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been, affected by someone else’s drinking. Whilst we do have a contingency plan in place there may be times when the Helpline is covered by a limited number of volunteers so please bear with us while we try to answer your call. We suggest anyone wishing to attend a meeting calls the Helpline to request a group contact.
Support for anyone affected by another's drinking.
