Alcohol has a huge impact on our culture. Our aim is to inform, educate and raise awareness on what the effects of alcohol are.
What our Alcohol Awareness service?
We can come to your organisation or school and deliver a short informal session looking at alcohol and its effect on individuals and communities. The session will allow individuals the opportunity to:
- Consider their own views and opinions of alcohol
- Increase their awareness of how much is too much and increase their understanding of what a unit of alcohol is
- Consider how an individual can drink more sensibly and safely
Who is it for?
The course can be tailored to particular groups, workplaces, young people, community groups and specific issues can be looked at in more detail.
Thinking Differently About Alcohol
Thinking Differently is a youth/community led project where local young people and adults develop ideas to tackle alcohol harm in their area. This means communities get to shape the project according to their own health priorities, with a range of activities taking place in Halfway, Burnhill and through our Youth Activist Steering Group open to all young people aged 14-17 in Cambuslang and Rutherglen.
