The Sensible Drinking Project and Alcohol Harm Reduction Project were funded by Liverpool PCT between 2008 and 2010and provided fun, interactive and informal group work to raise awareness and reduce the harm caused to young people by alcohol
We received funding to work in the North and East Liverpool with children and young people aged 9 to 19 in:
• Primary schools delivering the Healthy Mission DVD which provides a holistic approach to developing a healthy lifestyle including alcohol awareness.
• Secondary schools and community venues, facilitating group work with young people for whom alcohol has been identified as an issue.
• AQA Accredited Award in Alcohol Awareness (12-19’s).
• Referral to other agencies for additional support including OKUK Counselling Service (MYA) and Young Addaction.
Although Healthline no longer receive regular funding to deliver this work we continue to deliver 6-session programmes on Substance Awareness of which alcohol awareness and the “sensible drinking” message plays a large part. Undoubtedly the experience of delivering this specific work over two years has strengthened the project’s ability and range of activities to address the still growing problem of young people not adhering to safe limits.
