ALCOHOL AWARENESS WEEK

 Alcohol Awareness Week (11th - 17th November) is organised by Alcohol Change UK, the new charity formed by the merger of Alcohol Research UK and Alcohol Concern. 

 Alcohol Change UK works for a society that is free from the harm caused by alcohol. Alcohol Change UK is not ‘anti-alcohol’ but promotes ‘alcohol change’.

Alcohol Awareness Week is a chance for the UK to get thinking about drinking. This year the theme is ‘Alcohol and me’.
