Drinkaware is launching a review in support of the Government’s Alcohol Strategy to develop a coherent, well evidenced strategy with regards to the role Drinkaware could play in reducing the harm from public drunkenness and its negative consequences.
The initiative is in support of the Government’s alcohol strategy to develop new approaches to reduce binge drinking and the damage it inflicts on surrounding communities.
As part of this activity, the charity has commissioned an independent researcher** to review the existing evidence and undertake fresh research.
The alcohol education charity is therefore calling for evidence from all interested parties to inform Drinkaware’s approach. This research will form the core of a report to be published in February 2014
Particular areas of interest relate to factors which drive ‘binge’ drinking, with an emphasis on evidence of relevance to Drinkaware’s remit of influencing through education, campaigns and local partnerships.
Specific areas of interest for submissions to the strategic review include:
Submissions should be received by Friday 11th October. They can be made either by e-mail to researcher Simon Christmas at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to the research company at Simon Christmas Ltd, 31-35 Great Ormond Street, London WC1N 3HZ.
