newbie seeking friendship

Hi there, I am writing on behalf of a young person I work with. She is 12 years old and has an alcoholic dad she feels very alone and I was looking for somebody of a similar age that is/has gone through the same thing. She has not suffered abuse and loves her dad very much. For child protection issues all correspondence will take place with an adult present. The young girl doesn't actually live with her Dad. He lives and works away. He contacts her on an irregular basis this causes her a lot of worry and stress as she feels like he doesn't love or miss her and worries about his health. She is constantly wondering when her next contact with him will be. I just really think she would benefit from talking to another young person who gets these emotions because of a similar issue. Thanks Emma
